The COVID-19 pandemic has put science front and center for the general public. People want to understand the science behind coronavirus and the possible solutions, and scientists are replacing pop stars as household names. At the same time, the unprecedented nature of coronavirus has demonstrated that scientists, doctors and policy makers do not have immediate solutions, and segments of the population continue to distrust and challenge the information and guidance coming from scientists and policy makers. In this environment, science communication has become more essential than ever as people seek to understand how science is conducted and how its outcomes are used.

Join this panel of policy makers and science journalists as they discuss ways to make science more transparent and inclusive, and what strategies are need to boost public trust and engagement in science.
