Register Now for NHC’s Virtual Science of Patient Engagement Symposium: Achieving Trust in and Trustworthiness of Science


By Silke Schoch, Manager, Research & Programs 

The National Health Council (NHC) has opened registration for our annual Science of Patient Engagement Symposium. The Symposium will take place virtually on October 13 & 14, and the theme for this year’s meeting is Achieving Trust in and Trustworthiness of Science 

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the general public’s lack of trust in scientific institutions and information. Join members of the patient advocacy, nonprofit, and scientific communities as we discuss how patient and community engagement can assist in improving trust in and trustworthiness of clinical research, health care delivery, and public institutions.  

In the lead up to this meeting, the NHC is also offering exciting pre-Symposium workshops on health literacy. This three-part series will begin on September 24 and can help you make sure your advocacy and scientific communications are developed and delivered in a way your constituents will understand. Topics for the series include an Introduction to Health Literacy, Health Literacy Strategies for Advocacy, and Health Literacy for Science Communication.   

This series is a must-attend for anyone in health and science advocacy, research, and communications. The first hour of these webinars will be open to the public. The second hour of the webinar will be an NHC-members and Symposium Registrant-only workshop. You can register for these webinars here
