March for Science

Public Health Marches for Science


Public Health scientists from the School of Public Health participated in the March for Science in Washington, D. C. and at the Rhode Island State House on April 22 to advocate for publicly funded scientific research and evidence-based policies. The March for Science Rhode Island was part of a nation-wide effort to promote  science-based policies that improve lives and strengthen society and to advocate for funding of science.

While in Washington, D.C. for the SGIM annual meeting last week, I had the opportunity to March for Science in the Capitol on Saturday. The weather was uncooperative, but we marched anyway.
