Alan Alda to Give Lecture on the Importance of Clear Science Communication at Johns Hopkins


You might remember him as Hawkeye Pierce on “M*A*S*H,” as Senator Vinick on “The West Wing,” or as the host of PBS’ “Scientific American Frontiers” for more than a decade. This Friday, Alan Alda will be visiting Johns Hopkins to share his thoughts on the importance of clear science communications to faculty, staff and students. Since 2009, he has been running the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stonybrook University, and has been a proponent of science communication and making science more accessible to everyone.

The lecture is open to all at The Johns Hopkins University and to the media. Alda will be available for interviews following the Q&A portion of his lecture.
