Communicating Science in an Age of Disbelief in Experts

 

American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Cordially invites you to a program

at the Carnegie Institution for Science on

Communicating  Science in an Age of Disbelief in Experts

 

 

This program will explore the disconnect between Americans' high regard for scientists and the growing distrust in scientific consensus about significant issues. Join us as we examine how science could be better communicated in an age of increasing ambivalence about the value of expertise.
