The ASBMB Public Affairs Advisory Committee sponsors an annual Capitol Hill Day in which students and postdocs from around the country come to Washington D.C. to meet with their congressional representatives. Participants partake in a Policy 101 training session before breaking into small groups for a full day of congressional meetings. This event serves to get young researchers involved in science advocacy and also to expose them to how the government works.
The next ASBMB Hill Day will be in the spring of 2015. Follow the ASBMB Policy Blotter for an announcement about the opening of the application process.
