Capitol Hill Day
Every year, the ASBMB brings trainees from across the country to meet with their congressional leaders in Washington, D.C. This fully funded opportunity gives trainees the chance to help promote scientific research by directly interacting with policymakers.
About the program
Congressional leaders look forward to meeting residents from their districts and rely upon their input when making decisions. As a participant in the ASBMB’s Capitol Hill Day, you can highlight the importance and successes of your research, discuss the impact of federally funded research on human health, and establish a personal connection with your lawmakers and their staffers.
On the first day, you will learn about the federal budget process and best practices for communicating with policymakers. On the second day, you will visit Capitol Hill to meet with your elected officials.
We provide transportation, lodging and meals during your stay in Washington, D.C.
