What’s Science Done for You Lately?

Join me at the Calgary Commons for a pizza lunch! I will be talking about what I do and why it’s important. Businesses and governments say that they want decisions to be “evidence based,” but what does that mean? A bewildering amount of scientific information gets reported daily, some of which is contradictory, preliminary, or even misleading. The gap between the science and the decision can be huge. Knowledge translation is the process of bringing science to decision making. I will show you a couple examples of how that’s done.
