NPR correspondent Joe Palca will deliver a talk titled “Science and News: A Marriage of Convenience,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in 1100 Social Sciences and Humanities Building at UC Davis.

The lecture will be free and open to the public. Those who wish to attend are asked to RSVP at https://joepalcaatucdavis.eventbrite.com.

Palca will discuss stories he’s covered, the stories behind those stories and the process of turning fundamental research into a news story for a nation of nonscientists, according to a news release.

Palca, who received a doctorate in psychology at UC Santa Cruz, has worked in journalism since 1982. He joined NPR in 1991 and has since covered an array of science topics and served as a guest host on “Science Friday.”

Awards he has earned for his work include the National Academies Communications Award and the Science-in-Society Award of the National Association of Science Writers.
