AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships: A scientist's experience in Congress
Abstract: At a time when a constant refrain in Congress is "I am not a scientist", what is a scientist to do? Go work for a Congressman. I will give an overview of the AAAS fellowship program and my experiences working in a Congressional office. I will discuss what it is like communicating science to policy makers on Capitol Hill, what some of the biggest challenges are and what scientists can do to impact policy. Bring your questions!
