2018 Alan J. Friedman Science Center Dialogues Luncheon

These annual, thought-provoking discussions are presented in the spirit of the founding director of the New York Hall of Science, Queens, New York.

Explore ways that we can better understand ourselves—and the communities and people we serve—through the lenses of neuroscience, psychology, medicine, and public health. What can we learn from these fields about broadening engagement in science and engaging diverse audiences, especially when that means encountering differing behaviors, approaches, and backgrounds in the young people and families within these communities?

Featured Speakers included Stephanie Devaney, Deputy Director of the All of Us Research Program at the at the U.S. National Institutes of Health, and
