As part of the Engaging Scientists project, the University of Maryland – Baltimore County and the AAAS Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) program hosted a series of short presentations and a panel discussion on science engagement with faith communities. The panel of science communicators, scientists and medical professionals shared insights drawn from their diverse backgrounds and interests.

Engaging Scientists Campus Events

This event was part of the Engaging Scientists project, organized by AAAS DoSER in consultation with the AAAS Center for Public Engagement. Six universities hosted speaker events to explore challenges, opportunities, and effective strategies for constructive dialogue about science by scientists with diverse (and particularly with religious/spiritual) publics.
