Who?
Richard Clarke

What's the talk about?

The reasons why an individual may refuse a vaccine that is backed by extremely strong safety and efficacy evidence are wide ranging and complex. In this talk, Richard Clarke will introduce you to the concept of Vaccine Hesitancy and explain how risk perception, uncertainty, social influence and, above all, trust plays a role in vaccine delay, selection and refusal.

Spoiler: Strangely enough just saying, “Vaccinate your damn kids!” might not be the most effective health communication strategy out there. Who’d have thought it?

Richard Clarke is a health psychologist and final year PhD candidate with The Vaccine Confidence Project (www.vaccineconfidence.org) based at The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Richard's area of expertise focuses on the social science related to vaccine delivery.

All are welcome — we look forward to an engaging and informative evening. Entry is £3.

Who?
Michael Marshall

What's the talk about?

In 2013, when Michael Marshall first interviewed the Vice President of the Flat Earth society for his show Be Reasonable, people could scarcely believe that anyone could genuinely think the Earth was flat. Five years later, Flat Earth belief has gone mainstream, spawning thousands of hours of YouTube videos, gaining widespread international media coverage, and attracting countless followers. How did we get here?

Michael Marshall is the Project Director of the Good Thinking Society and the Vice President of the Merseyside Skeptics Society. He has organised homeopathy protests, gone undercover to expose psychics and quack medics, and co-founded the popular QED conference. He regularly speaks with proponents of pseudoscience for the Be Reasonable podcast and has written for the Guardian, The Times and New Statesman.

This talk is part of the Chichester Festival and will be a ticketed event. Link to follow.

£6 on the door, if there is any space left.
