About this talk

Scientists have a role and responsibility to reach out to society to interact and communicate for many reasons. Most importantly to share knowledge to raise awareness and dispel myths and share good practices. This is even more imminent today with COVID19 and the role science is playing in prevention and therapy worldwide. Scientists must use the skills, experience, and expertise they have to help solve challenges within their communities. This means scientists must step out of their classrooms and labs into the street to talk and listen to people. This is one-way science can influence policy by giving scientific advice based on research and evidence to policymakers to raise awareness and standard of life of society. I will share practical advice and stories on how to be an ambassador of science in your community.
