Dr. Raven speaks on Harvard on Communicating Science and Risk during Disease Outbreaks
Communicating science and risk during infectious disease outbreaks and the subsequent translation into sustainable policies and for the public to understand and modify any behaviors is a cornerstone of effective outbreak control. The COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing monkeypox outbreak have shown both good practice examples as well as challenges in effective science and risk communication. This event will cover the diverse roles of science communicators, from science communicators to journalists.
The event was hosted by Belfer Center's Dr. Syra Madad in conversation with a panel of Science Communicators and Journalists.
