Community Events

The HRCC wants to engage with the public about important health, risk, environment, and science communication issues.

Communication on Tap

The Comm on Tap series is modeled after a popular format for science communication: invite community members to a popular pub to chat with topic experts from the local college or university. For regular updates, follow the Communication on Tap Facebook page.

The HRCC began holding its Comm on Tap series in 2018.
