With hundreds of studies each year sounding alarms about climate change, loss of endangered species, and the collapse of ocean fish stocks, why do scientists struggle so mightily to get the public’s attention? Join marine biologist Kristen Marhaver for a look at what’s wrong with the way research findings are delivered to the public. And hear her ideas for giving policymakers access to the most relevant data so they can make informed decisions.

Kristen Marhaver, PhD, is a marine biologist and NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in Ocean Sciences at Carmabi Foundation Research Station on the island of Curaçao, where she studies Caribbean corals.
