April 21, 2023 @ 12:20 pm - 1:10 pm


The College of Biological Sciences Student Board is hosting a DEIJ Speaker Series event. On April 21, Dr. Lillie Williamson of the University of Wisconsin will discuss how missteps in this scientific communication have resulted in distrust with marginalized communities and health disparities.

Dr. Lillie Williamson is from the University of Wisconsin and works in the field of scientific communication. Her research examines the ways in which racial experiences and health communication interact to influence racial health inequalities. She will discuss the significant impact that missteps in this area have had on the relationship between the scientific community and various racial and marginalized populations. She is excited to share more about the growing field and her current work on scientific communication, medical mistrust, and misinformation. Lunch will be provided.
