KCLS Online Program: Is Truth Really Dead in America? @ KCLS Online
Jul 15 @ 7:00 pm
KCLS Online Program: Is Truth Really Dead in America? @ KCLS Online |  |  |

Alternative facts, fake news, post-truth—these phrases have flooded the American conversation over the past several years. But how bad is it really, and what can we, as a society and as individuals, do to be better informed?
WSU professor Steven Stehr investigates the roots and consequences of the erosion of truth, with a focus on politics and science. From the rise of conspiracy theories to the echo chamber of social media, Stehr leads a conversation that asks to what extent are we living in a post-truth world? Have both political parties used deception to their advantage? How does the use of knowledge and facts vary in different policy debates?
Taking us through real-world examples of conspiracy theories, junk science and fake news, Stehr shows audiences how to find facts in a world of misinformation.
Please register at kcls.org by 6pm on July 15.

KCLS Online Program: Alzheimer's & Effective Communication Strategies @ KCLS Online |  |  |

For adults.
Presented by the Alzheimer’s Association.
Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect.
Explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
