Science is more than data, and sharing it requires more than reciting information
Scientific discoveries mean nothing if they are not shared. Effective communication
requires trust, mutual understanding, and dynamic two-way connections in which audience
members help build meaning and find ways to engage with new or complex information.
With that strong foundation and interpersonal connection, science can:
- Inform public policy
- Support individual and community health and well-being
- Inspire others to investigate and discover

Most of the program may be completed remotely. Students must come to campus to participate
