The flu vaccine can give you the flu. Climate change is a hoax. Nutella causes cancer.

At a time when misleading or potentially dangerous science reporting can reach millions with a Twitter or Facebook post, the need for quality science reporting is critical.

At the sixth Johns Hopkins-Pulitzer Center Symposium, award-winning science reporters and Bloomberg School faculty will explore the challenges of translating the complexities of science into understandable, compelling and informative news.

The panel will also discuss the responsibilities of both scientists and reporters in explaining key research messages and producing balanced and accurate journalism.
