Restoring faith in public science agencies

As the numbers of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths mount, we nonetheless have reason to be optimistic.  Two promising vaccines, developed at record speed using cutting-edge technology, are set to be delivered to our first responders and most vulnerable citizens. A new administration will take office in January, and has promised to elevate science and science-driven policy. But the pandemic is far from over. We must treat the sick, bring infection rates under control, and successfully distribute the vaccine to most of the American public. All of this depends on rebuilding the faith of ordinary Americans in the doctors, scientists, and scientific agencies who should rightfully be leading us through this perilous time.

Join Duke Science & Society and their honored guests, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Alan Alda, in a discussion of how to restore the faith of the American people in science and the scientific agencies—what we must do now, and in the months ahead, to rebuild their trust in these essential actors and institutions.

Co-Sponsored by the Duke Energy Initiative, the Duke Global Health Institute, the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences, the Duke Law Center for Innovation Policy, the Duke Rhodes Information Initiative, the Georgetown Law O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health, the Harvard Petrie-Flom Center for Bioethics, the Stanford Law Center for Law and the Biosciences, and the Yale School of Public Health.
