David Hawkins has just been just elected to the AAAS! This extraordinary honor is especially significant because as a lawyer, not a formally credentialed scientist, Dave’s unique talents are being recognized — the ability to interpret complex scientific findings in ways that command trust from the scientific community, and then to intelligibly communicate their implications to national and international policymakers and to the general public.

About the Y65 Zoom Hour Series

We intend to run this monthly Zoom series indefinitely. A calendar of future events into 2022 is currently under development and will be published shortly. Stay tuned!
