What is it like to be a scientist in the public eye? What makes science so important to discuss? Can we combat the fake news and pseudoscience epidemics by communicating about science? How can outbreaks of infectious diseases be prevented?
Find out this and much more with Dr. Jennifer Gardy – a trailblazing scientist and science communicator who was dubbed by The Globe and Mail as “the new Suzuki”.
Dr. Gardy is the second speaker of 2018 co-organized with the GISS Student Council who will inspire and engage both students and adults alike!
Jennifer Gardy is a Senior Scientist at the BC Centre for Disease Control and an Assistant Professor in UBC’s Faculty of Medicine. She also regularly hosts episodes of CBC’s The Nature of Things.
