Discovery Cafe is a series of public lectures given by experts in their fields to the community of Blackburn Hamlet, hosted by BHCC. It runs from September to November, January to May on the last Friday of each month, 7:30pm-9pm. Each evening consists of a 45 minute talk followed by a Q & A period. Desserts and coffee/tea are provided. There is no charge although small donations are always appreciated.
Our speaker on February 22 is Dr. Josh Greenberg, Professor of Communication and Media Studies and Director of the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University.
His research examines media coverage of outbreaks and infectious disease risks; public risk perceptions of vaccination; the risk communication activities and strategies of key public health agencies and organizations; and the impact of technology change on public health communication.
