Please join us the McGill Office for Science and Society (OSS) in marking their 20th anniversary!

David Harpp, Tomlinson Chair in Science Education, will take a look back at the OSS' last 20 years and how they became the first-ever University backed office dedicated to critical thinking and disseminating information based on scientific evidence in a world long before the term "fake news" even existed. 

Following this retrospective, Timothy Caulfield, Author of Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything and star of A User's Guide to Cheating Death, Joe Schwarcz, Director of the McGill OSS, Carly Weeks, National Health Reporter at The Globe and Mail, and Ryan Armstrong, Executive Director of the non-profit organization Bad Science Watch, will each present a 10-minute "flash talk" describing one main challenge they face in science communication today. This will then be followed by a panel discussion moderated by McGill OSS science communicator, Jonathan Jarry.
