Understanding the Science

Understanding the Science

Bringing together scientists, researchers, policy makers, and community leaders to discuss issues facing Utah.

This quarterly lecture series will provide in-depth discussions on topics that address our communities. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and get factual, timely information from leading experts. Understanding the Science is supported by Intuitive Funding.

Currently, the series is held virtually over Zoom. We hope to offer in-person discussions later in 2021.
