Communicating Research to Publics and Policy Makers

1:30-4:30 p.m.
Vivian and David Campbell Conference Facility, Munk Centre for International Studies, University of Toronto, 1 Devonshire Place
     
You are cordially invited to attend a policy workshop entitled
"Communicating Research to Publics and Policy Makers", proudly hosted
by the Centre for Urban Health Initiatives and the Wellesley Central
Health Corporation.
     
The next generation of researchers is being called on to communicate
their results in a context that is much larger than the traditional
ivory tower. This panel workshop will initiate conversation about
successful strategies for communicating research to the public and
policy makers.  Three expert panelists will offer their
perspective on the best practices for effective knowledge communication
in their areas of expertise.  An open forum following the panel
presentations will engage the audience in discussion. 

Panelists: Judith Maxwell, Founding President and Research Fellow,
Canadian Policy Research Networks (CPRN); Mike Gasher, Associate
Professor, Department of Journalism at Concordia University; and Paul
Muldoon, Executive Director, Canadian Environmental Law Association
(CELA).
