200th Annual Meeting of the New York Academy of Sciences

Thursday, September 27, 2018, 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York, USA

The New York Academy of Sciences is pleased to invite our valued Members to the Academy's 200th Annual Meeting and Welcome Reception on Thursday, September 27th, 2018! Join your fellow Members, Academy Staff, and a few special guests as we celebrate the launch of the Academy’s Third Century as a Membership organization.

Our program will feature an interactive panel discussion exploring questions at the intersection of science and journalism. How can the media convey the wonder and enormous potential of scientific discovery, without descending into oversimplification or hyperbole? How do researchers seeking to engage with a broader audience find the right balance between scientific accuracy and public accessibility? What are the respective responsibilities of scientists and journalists in this era of science denialism and “fake news”? These questions and more will be debated by a distinguished panel made up of representatives from different media platforms, including Nsikan Akpan, PhD (PBS NewsHour), Amanda Aronczyk (WNYC), David Freeman (, and Amy Dockser Marcus (The Wall Street Journal). The panel will be moderated by Jay Flynn of Wiley Research. Before adjourning for the New Member Welcome Reception, our President and CEO, Ellis Rubinstein, will close out the program with his annual “State of the Academy” address.

The Academy's 200th Annual Meeting and one-hour reception to follow are free for all current Academy Members, however, registration is required to attend in person.

Unable to make it in person? We’ll be Livestreaming the meeting so you can participate from anywhere in the world (no registration required)!
