Data for the People

Data for the People (D4P) is an interactive web-series that invites all people to engage with relevant scientific research topics, presented by scientists from our communities. We believe that everyone has a right to access primary scientific information and the opportunity to learn how science connects to our society. For this reason, Information is sourced directly from primary scientific literature and explored in a way that maintains the rigor of the research while eliminating inaccessible jargon.

D4P sessions are presented by scientists who enroll in our D4P Fellowship program and work through a science communication and engagement training period that combines theory, practice, and direct feedback for iteration and skills development.

D4P is presented as a related collection of 3-5 live online events, occurring over a time span of 4-6 weeks, and comprise a themed season (i.e. COVID-19 or Food Science). Events are recorded and uploaded to YouTube as a D4P episode that can be accessed at any time in the future. Each season will culminate in a town hall-style event that demonstrates the ways in which science can connect to our society. Registration for each D4P event is free and open to anyone who is interested in attending.
