Alan Alda - Getting Beyond a Blind Date with Science

A sincere thank you to our sponsors and everyone in attendance as Alan Alda helped us get beyond a blind date with science through better communication.  He reminded us of the importance of helping our communities 'surf the uncertainty' of science as new knowledge is generated every day which helps us better understand the complex and miraculous human body.

Background 

Mr. Alda is co-founder of the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stonybrook University (New York), and leads workshops that use improvisational theatre activities to help scientists communicate more directly and personally. His presentation titled "Getting Beyond a Blind Date with Science" reflects Mr. Alda's belief that people should have an easier time understanding and relating to science...and we agree!
