Capitol Hill Day

Talk to policymakers at this special advocacy event on March 5.

Just before the conference, GSA will lead a delegation of scientists to Capitol Hill to visit Senators, Representatives, and staffers. Participants will have a chance to engage with policy makers and to highlight the importance of fundamental discoveries, including the ways in which genetics has impacted the economy and human health. This is a great opportunity for scientists to talk about their work, their favorite organism, and explain why science matters.
