Strategies for Overcoming Science Denial

Published November 29, 2018

Taking a Scientific Approach

In order to counter science denial, these researchers are studying what's working and what's not.

Though the denial of scientific facts is a longstanding, global phenomenon, it's very difficult to find effective solutions to the problem.

In this video, you'll hear from experts who have studied what's working and what's not working. Moderated by Richard G. Marlink, MD (Rutgers Global Health Institute), this panel features Allan M. Brandt, PhD (Harvard University), Hoosen Coovadia, MD (University of KwaZulu-Natal & University of the Witwatersrand), Amanda Dempsey, MD, PhD, MPH (University of Colorado, Denver), and Cathy Techtmann, MS (University of Wisconsin-Extension).

This panel was part of our 1-day symposium, "Science Denial: Lessons and Solutions," co-presented with the Rutgers Global Health Institute. Watch the other talks and panels that were part of the symposium on our Livestream channel.
