May 13: A Virtual Conversation with Science Journalist Malin Attefall, Television Producer at Sweden’s Public Service TV

Wednesday, May 13, 1 pm EDT
on Zoom

Sweden’s response to COVID-19 differs from the United States as well as its European neighbors. There is no lockdown. Sweden has kept large parts of its society open. This approach was devised by scientists and backed by the Swedish government who has encouraged its citizens to work from home and not gather in crowds over 50. Bars and restaurants are open. Primary schools are open. Is this strategy working?

On Wednesday, May 13th, Science Writers in New York invites you to join us on Zoom for a conversation with SWINY co-chair David Levine and Malin Attefall, a television producer at the Swedish public service television company Sveriges television. David will talk to Malin about how Sweden is responding to the virus, common misconceptions about Sweden’s approach and the difference in everyday life compared to the lockdown in other countries.

Malin Attefall is a senior producer and editor-in-chief at the Swedish public service television company Sveriges television (comparable to PBS).

Malin is currently producing the series Bästa träningen (The Best Workout), a science-based reality show where four couples change their lifestyles and start to exercise for eight weeks while scientists measure their progress.

Malin is the author of the book The Diet Compass, focusing on the science of diets. Every year, she interviews the Nobel Laureates in Medicine in their home countries. She also has a background in television news and in making science television for kids.
