This year’s Donaghue Conference, Evaluating Risk: How Perception Affects our Health, is Thursday, May 3rd, from 7:30am – 12:30pm at the Hartford Marriott Farmington, 15 Farm Springs Road in Farmington. Speakers will cover the factors that account for how we evaluate risk and how this influences public health communications and priorities and our own responses and actions. Speakers will also discuss how the understanding of risk and risk perception enters into practitioner/patient discussions about prevention and medical treatment decisions. Donaghue conferences are always thought provoking, fostering innovation in health and policymaking. As in years’ past the conference is free but registration is required.
