As the health sciences advance at a swift pace the question arises about whether the public has the requisite community resources needed to make informed decisions about their health.  At the same time, to be effective communicators, health experts must directly engage with the public in order to fully understand local community needs.

Health Science Frontiers addresses these needs through a series of televised public forums that involve a panel discussion about topical health science issues with a broad array of experts including scientists, communicators, reporters, medical providers, ethicists, advocates, and policy-makers.  Following the panel, audience members will have the opportunity to add their own questions and insights into the discussion.

This project is directed by Dr. Erik C. Nisbet, Assistant Professor in the OSU School of Communication.  He can be reached at science_forum@osu.edu.
