Understanding research isn’t always easy and often there is a disconnect between the research being done and how that applies to healthcare and to us as individuals. For some, trust in biomedical research can be tenuous but it is critically important that we, the public, know the science and become informed.

Join us for our next PNR Rendezvous webinar to learn what one regional organization is doing as they work towards building public trust in biomedical research.

When: Wednesday September 19, 1:00pm PT, noon Alaska, 2:00pm MT

PNR Rendezvous session title: Community Conversations that Build Trust in Biomedical Research

Session Summary: Public trust in biomedical research is critical to ensure public support and translation into medical advances. The mission of Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR) is to promote the public’s trust in biomedical research and its ethical conduct. NWABR’s informal science education and professional development programs address falling public trust in biomedical research. During this webinar, you will learn about NWABR’s cornerstone public outreach program, the Community Conversation Series. Community Conversations, located in Seattle & Spokane, WA and Portland, OR, tackle issues in biomedical research and their relationship with ethics and society. They are a model for public learning and discussion that encourage directional rather than binary thinking and seek to build trust. Community Conversations can be replicated or modified to suit your organization’s programming and goals.
The presenters will also provide an overview of their student and professional programs that support the “S” and “T” in STEM.
At the conclusion of this webinar  you will have some new ideas about how you might more deeply engage your stakeholders in STEM.

How to join: Registration is encouraged though not required.  Complete information on how to join the webinar is on the session web page 

The session will be recorded and posted on the website.
