The Office on Science Education sponsors "Science in the Cinema," a free film festival designed to promote public understanding of science, health, and medicine. You have an opportunity to screen films with a medical science theme and then listen to an expert on the subject's commentary and question-and-answer period with the audience.
The King's Speech screening event features guest speakers Lana Shekim, Ph.D., program director of the speech/voice division of scientific programs at NIDCD; and Dennis Drayna, Ph.D., chief of the laboratory of communication disorders at NIDCD.
