NH Superior Court Chief Justice, Tina Nadeau, delivers the Perkins Bass Distinguished Lecture. Rockefeller Center Associate Director, Ronald G. Shaiko, hosts.

Monday, November 8, 2021
Filene Auditorium, Moore Building

Lecture Info:
Myth vs. Science: When policy decisions are made based upon fear, emotion, or incomplete information, they make us feel better but is that really problem solving? During this session we will focus upon evidence-based approaches to reducing addiction, and resulting health problems, that have been effective in other countries. As part of our discussion we will examine why those successful models face challenges in the U.S.
