About Risk Sense
Risk Sense is a blog is written by the faculty, staff and students of the University of Michigan Risk Science Center. It explores the role of evidence and science in helping understand the nature of human health risks, and how individuals and organizations can most effectively respond to challenges and opportunities. More than anything, the blog is intended to be a conversation between people seeking to make informed decisions in a complex world of risks and benefits. Because of this, some people will sometimes disagree with what is written – either in the articles or in the comments. In these cases, we would encourage you to add your voice, and join the conversation.
Here, we write about a number of things, including our research and other activities; our thoughts and ideas on science-informed approaches to human health risk; our perspectives on contemporary health risk issues; and the latest activities of the University of Michigan Risk Science Center. In all cases this blog represents the opinions and perspectives of individual authors. Posts represent how we see the world and what we as individual authors think is interesting and important. They do not necessarily represent the opinions and views of the Risk Science Center, the University of Michigan School of Public Health, or the University of Michigan.
