NPR Science Reporter to give public talk April 22

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Christopher Joyce, a science correspondent at NPR, will give a talk at 4 p.m. April 22, in the HUB-Robeson Center Auditorium, about science communications in a time of changing news outlets. “Scientists and Journalists: Codependents in the Age of Disappearing Media,” is free and open to the public.

Joyce’s work is part of "Morning Edition," "All Things Considered" and "Weekend Edition." He reports from around the world on a range of science and environment-related topics, including climate change, human evolution and hurricanes. He has also served as a national desk reporter for NPR and covered international stories including the war in Kosovo and Bosnia.

Joyce’s work includes two science books for a popular audience: “Witnesses from the Grave: The Stories Bones Tell” that he co-wrote and “Earthly Goods: Medicine-Hunting in the Rainforest.”

His visit is being sponsored by Penn State’s Earth and Environmental Systems Institute in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, and the Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment.
