  Abstract: What are the roles and responsibilities of scientists to reach out and establish a dialogue with the public? Why is it important for scientists to do this? This talk will also describe various American Institute of Physics (AIP) media efforts including the Discoveries and Breakthroughs Inside Science TV (DBIS) program. DBIS is a peer-reviewed, syndicate science news service that distributes twelve 90-second news segments to local television stations. Each month, DBIS can be seen by more than 52 million people in the USA and over 200 million people internationally. DBIS was supported by the National Science Foundation (2003-2007) and currently has financial support from a broad coalition of scientific societies.
