Science Denialism, Public Policy, and Global Health
June 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
From climate change denial, to vaccine fears, to the rejection of the viral cause of HIV/AIDS, science denial has devastating implications for global health. Rutgers Global Health Institute and the New York Academy of Sciences present an evening panel discussion for the general public that will raise awareness of this issue, explore its causation, and provide a transparent dialogue for enacting meaningful responses to denialism today. Ira Flatow, the host of Science Friday, will guide science historian Allan Brandt, public opinion and science communication specialist Dominique Brossard, public policy expert Kelly Brownell, and political scientist Kelly Greenhill through these important conversations.
The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St., Fl. 40, New York, NY
