Because Science is made up of scientists who are passionate about sharing their excitement for science with the public. Many of us do this in multiple forums in addition to the blog. Ross, Helen, and Zuri are all involved in a public lecture series called Science in the News, run by the Yale Science Diplomats. As you can see from the flyer above, each of them will be giving lectures on different exciting topics over the next few months.
The first event is tomorrow: Tuesday, February 17 at 6:30PM at Roselfeld Hall, 109 Grove Street, New Haven, CT (note location and time change from flier)! Zuri will be talking about how bats can teach us about fighting Ebola. She will be joined by two other Yale graduate students, Kylia Goodner and Caroline Lieffers, who will talk about public health aspects of Ebola control and media portrayals of the 2014 outbreak. If you're curious about Ebola, and are in the New Haven area, we encourage you to attend! The lectures will be repeated next Tuesday, February 24, at the Branford, CT public library.
Be sure to come out for the other upcoming Science in the News events this semester, including Helen's lecture on the aging brain in March, lectures on superpowers in April, and Ross's lecture on new ways of treating cancer in May.
