Details are as follows:
June 29, 2017: 8:00AM - 10:45AM
National Press Club

8:00AM - 9:00AM: Continental Breakfast is available

"The Little Black Book of Junk Science is just what it sounds like," says Dr. Alex Berezow, Senior Fellow in Biomedical Science for the Council and author of the book. "Everyone talks about fake news but it is a little harder to know what junk science is if you are not an expert. This book is a pocket-sized reference that will allow the public to do just that. Family barbecues will never be the same!"
Following the opening remarks, a panel of experts including Dr. Berezow will talk about their most worrisome examples of junk science, the economic, cultural and policy implications of when junk science enters the national discussion, and what the grass roots pro-science community can do to prevent government decision-makers from using junk science in order to make political claims.
Those interested in attending need to email to firstname.lastname@example.org to gain access. This event is open to media and the public.
