• Question: How do you think scientific research, which contains a lot of technical language and data, can be more accessible to the general public and people in villages in Alaska?

      I think breaking down the technical language and data into words that are spoken everyday would make things easier. For example, in toothpaste adverts on TV, they do not tell you about the chemical process involved in making that toothpaste good, but the language they use makes you understand why it is good. They say things like “Removes the toughest plaque” and “Can go into difficult to reach places in your teeth cavities”.
