Steenbock's on Orchard, Discovery Building
We live in troubled times for science and journalism. Both are under siege by segments of society and by leaders who challenge scientific evidence and the veracity and integrity of the nation's leading news organizations. Join us for a panel discussion with UW–Madison science writer-in-residence Laura Helmuth, Jo Handelsman, Alta Charo and moderator Sharon Dunwoody on the importance of independent, well-sourced and well-reported science news in preserving the interests of society.
