Presenter: Dr. Lucile Jones, United States Geological Survey

Summary: "Communicating scientific and technical information is not a 
talent or done by luck. Research and experience reveal the best ways to 
connect with an audience to communicate expert information as well as 
the uncertainty that sometimes surrounds it. Dr. Lucy Jones has over 20 
years of experience and has worked with psychologists, anthropologists 
and other social scientists to understand how an audience receives and 
responds to risk communication. She will share her insight into how to 
communicate scientific research effectively to the media and general 
public, and she'll share what researchers in risk communication field 
say about how to be most effective."
