Trevor Butterworth with Sense About Science USA will be the featured keynote speaker at the American Meat Science Association’s (AMSA) 71st Reciprocal Meat Conference (RMC) on June 26th at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, MO. This keynote presentation, sponsored by Kemin, will address “Trust, Transparency, and Communicating Science.” Butterworth will focus on the reality that facts rarely change people’s beliefs. What does that mean for scientific integrity and progress moving forward?
