Who We Are

Since 2002, SCN has kept environmental health science front-and-center for journalists and through them, for the public and decision-makers. We work to increase the amount and depth of media coverage of important research, and thereby increase awareness of environmental and public health issues that affect people’s daily lives.

SCN never gets its own name in the press; we serve only to facilitate the process of communication between scientists and reporters in order to improve the odds that science will be reported accurately. We are guided by our stellar board of science advisers, chaired by Dr, Pete Myers.

SCN operates under a Joint Plan of Work with Virginia Organizing, which is a 501(c)3 and accepts tax-deductible financial contributions on our behalf.
