From GMOs to Big Data: the curious disappearance of food politics - Kelly Bronson, 9/25/18 Colloquium

Kelly Bronson, uOttawa - Abstract: Many scholars have made sense of opposition to genetically engineered (GE) organisms as contextual: these tools are judged in their historical linkages with poisonous agricultural chemicals (like dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane/DDT), and with the corporations responsible for the production of such chemicals who now sell GE seed systems.

Christopher Cummings – ‘Vaccine Attitudes and Misperceptions’

October 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

10/2 Speaker: Christopher Cummings | Abstract: "Vaccines are among the most effective disease prevention tools. Vaccines provide first-line disease prevention and are one of the most cost-effective initiatives to improve public health. While virtually all medical practitioners agree that vaccines are greatly beneficial, there are widespread reports of uncertainty and skepticism regarding vaccine efficacy, side effects, and information needs across traditional and new media. This reflects the obfuscated perspective held by many members of the public who note considerable concern when it comes to making immunization decisions. Additionally, immunization rates remain substandard for many diseases around the world and the literature investigating vaccine reluctance signals a pressing need to improve health literacies and health communication in order to dispel vaccine myths and promote immunization uptake around the world."

Raleigh, NC United States

10/9 Colloquium: Shi Chen | Abstract: Social media have become an integral part of public health communication. More and more individuals first resort to social media for information during health crisis and disease outbreaks. While the low cost and easy access of social media make it more convenient for health communicators to disseminate useful information to the general public, they also have the side effect of enabling wide and fast spread of fake health news.
