Science Inquiry Lecture - Fighting Doubt By Facilitating Trust Between Scientists and The Public

Join MOR and the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences as we explore cutting-edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by an engaging question and answer session.

How can Society advance evidence-based, science-related public policy when a portion of the public doesn’t believe in our best science? Dr. Kristen Intemann, Professor of Philosophy at Montana State University, will examine the evidence for explaining this “belief gap” and will discuss potential solutions and strategies for bridging the gap between scientists and the public on important issues including climate change and vaccine safety.

Hager Auditorium lectures have a limited capacity and are open on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors open 30 minutes before each lecture. Attendees may not save seats for others.
