Senior Health Scientist Denise Hill Participates in 61st Annual Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Institute Panel Discussion

Denise Hill, PhD, participated in a panel discussion on Saturday, July 18 at the Dena’ina Convention Center in Anchorage, Alaska as part of the 61st Annual Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Institute. Despite the off-the-beaten-track location, the 61st Annual Institute drew over 700 conference attendees; many commented that it was the best annual institute ever. This panel involved current topics related to risk perception, assessment, and communication.

The well-received discussion, Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid. Dealing with Public Perceptions of Risk in Oil & Gas Development, examined the various factors that create public fear, cause many in the public to oppose oil and gas development, and contribute to common misperceptions about what is truly risky in our lives. Further, the panel discussed whether the industry practice of providing more and more information to the public to assuage fear and demonstrate the benefits of development is still the best approach, and addressed possible alternatives including innovative approaches to community engagement.  Read more here

Denise was joined on the panel by Colin G. Harris (of Bryan Cave LLP), Tisha Schuller (formerly of Colorado Oil and Gas Association and currently of Rocky Mountain Energy Summit), and moderator Ivan London (of Bryan Cave LLP).
