Scientists and policy makers face society’s most complex and challenging issues. Decision makers are siloed from researchers who possess technical knowledge that can be used to inform regulation and legislation for improved public health. It is uncommon for scientists to disseminate findings to public audiences, although doing so would contribute to social justice efforts by providing reliable and accurate information to assist decision makers and leader’s problem solving. This panel-led discussion will help researchers and community gain an understanding of actionable ways to close the science-society gap.
