Location: Lamb Room

Join us as Yale Science Diplomats presents From Fieldwork to Facebook: Climate Change, Public Health, and Misinformation in the Media. We’ve all seen articles on Facebook touting scientific breakthroughs that promise new miracle drugs. But how scientifically accurate are these articles? How does science make its way from lab benches into the media? In this March installment of Science in the News, our three speakers will discuss climate change, public health, and fracking and what the media gets right—or wrong—about the science at the core of these issues.
