What Purpose? The ability of science and technology to improve society requires a trust relationship between consumers, academics and journalists. We explore the capabilities and limitations of this network. We seek understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of providing factual science-based food information. As facts flow from benchtop to blog does accuracy suffer?
This program welcomes anyone interested in effective science communication or in critically analyzing food claims. Thanks to our sponsors there is no cost to attend but advance registration is required and limited to seating.
