Alan Alda's talk is presented by the Center for Communicating Science with underwriting by the Kavli Foundation. Visit http://www.centerforcommunicatingscie... and http://www.kavlifoundation.org.

In an engaging, personal talk, Alan Alda draws on his wide-ranging experiences as an actor, writer, and longtime advocate for science. As host of PBS' Scientific American Frontiers, he interviewed 700 scientists around the world. Now, as a founding member of the Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, he is helping scientists connect more directly with people outside their field -- from public officials, funders and the media, to potential collaborators in other disciplines, to friends, family and neighbors.
