As part of our Science Literacy series from the National Science Foundation, our guest today is head of the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences, at NSF, Dr. Arthur Lupia.

Dr. Lupia has been on the show previously and is a popular guest with you, our wonderful Not Old Better Show audience.

Dr. Lupia always has such fascinating news and research from NSF to share with us, and today is no exception.

For all of you who are unfamiliar with NSF, its mission to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense…” So, important, vital work.

Dr. Arthur Lupia and his great team at NSF do this work creatively, and today we’ll learn about 3 current NSF funded programs where creativity is certainly at work in a big, important way, making people’s lives’ safer with science.

I want to jump right into this with Dr. Lupia, so please join me in welcoming back to The Not Old Better Show, Dr. Arthur Lupia, from the National Science Foundation.
