Learn about global efforts to expand access to science

Find out how the United Nations is expanding access to scientific progress at the APA's Annual Convention session "The Human Right to Benefit from Science," on Aug. 7, 10 a.m.–11:50 a.m.

Presenters will share progress on the effort to share scientific advancements in psychology, medicine, engineering, conservation and education. Speakers Margaret W. Vitullo, PhD, of the American Sociological Association, and Jessica Wyndham, JD, of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), will present data from a report that includes the first systematic empirical evidence on scientists' views on the meaning of the human right to benefit from scientific progress and its applications. The report — which was well-received by the United Nations last year — includes data from 17 focus groups with 145 scientists and engineers, including psychologists, conducted by the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition, a group of more than 50 societies, including APA and its Div. 9 (Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues).

Psychologist Maria E. Torre, PhD, of the City University of New York, will discuss people's right to participate in research and highlight efforts to make psychological research a more public and democratic initiative. Clinton Anderson, PhD, APA's representative on the coalition's Service to the STEM community working group, will chair the session.
