Fiona Lethbridge, Science Media Centre, gives a talk on the Science Media Centre and it's work.

Fiona is a senior press officer at the Science Media Centre and has worked there since July 2012. She has a PhD in evolutionary biology from the University of Edinburgh. The Science Media Centre is an independent press office which opened in 2002 and believes that scientists can have a huge impact on the way the media cover scientific issues, by engaging quickly and effectively with the stories that are influencing public debate and attitudes to science, by speaking to journalists when they need their help. The SMC’s philosophy is that ‘The media will DO science better when scientists DO the media better.’ The SMC aims to help improve the accuracy and evidence-base of media reporting on the big and controversial science, health and environment news of the day, working on stories from GM, fracking and Fukushima to statins, e-cigarettes, antidepressants and the coronavirus.
Please could you name the talk by its title above rather than 'Careers Event talk'
