Information is the key to life. We want to know what to eat, how to protect our environment, what risks to avoid and what to do if illness strikes. But when it comes to acquiring information, it is the best of times and the worst of times. It is the age of wisdom, it is the age of foolishness. Newspapers, television, radio and of course the Internet bombard us with information at an unprecedented rate, but when it comes to scientific issues the quality of the information is variable.
Priority is to enhance science teaching and outreach

David Harpp officially began his tenure as Tomlinson Chair in University Science Teaching on February 1. But as anyone who knows the long-standing chemistry prof will tell you, he’s been preparing for this his whole professional life. “It’s a pretty good fit,” said Harpp from his Otto Maas office, smiling the smile of a man who thoroughly enjoys understatement.
Dr. Joe Schwarcz will present "Alternative Medicine - Hope or Hype?"
Presenter: Dr. Joe Schwarcz
