Event description

Description

Community Conversations Science Café is a bi-monthly speaker’s series produced by the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center, UC Davis Center for Reducing Health Disparities, and the Powerhouse Science Center.

Science Café Background Information

The CTSC Community Engagement Program began the Science Café speaker series in August 2016. The purpose of the events is to provide a casual, safe space for lay audiences to have conversations with scientists, and is aimed at engaging the general public in a discussion about research, current events, and other aspects of science that have current public interest (e.g., the opioid addiction crisis and how to manage it, the spread and dangers of the Zika virus, etc.).

These community-research education conversations are hosted bimonthly and are an opportunity for researchers to

  • Present cutting-edge research findings

  • Engage with and learn from the end-users of scientific health discoveries (the public)

  • Enhance the public trust in science

  • Improve scientific literacy

  • Spark interest in collaboration with health researchers
