Kavli Conversations on Science Communication

 

Kavli Conversations on Science Communcation at NYU

A live, interactive webcast from New York. Join us!

What happens when leading journalists who cover science and eminent scientists who reach mass audiences get together to exchange ideas? What do their differing perspectives tell us about how science communication is changing and how we can do it better?

Sponsored by the Kavli Foundation and the Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program at NYU. Moderated by Robert Lee Hotz, science writer at the Wall Street Journal and a Distinguished Writer in Residence at the Carter Institute of Journalism.
