Vaccinating Against Misinformation: Who is Responsible?
Time & Location
About the Event
Do you understand new medical discoveries and how they impact you?
Steven Pinker, in his book “Enlightenment Now”, has outlined that billions of lives have been saved by the many scientists and that life span in Europe has gone from less than 40 years in 1860 to over 80 years by 2020. History shows that vaccines are one of the scientific advances which have played a crucial role in eradicating disease and saving millions of people.
With this in mind, why does there seem to be conflicting information about vaccines? How can we ensure information from scientists is effectively transmitted into society? Within the current system who is responsible for communicating this information? What processes would ensure greater accuracy?
Join us in conversation with Adam Ritchie to unpack these questions and explore the topic further.
