Research!America regularly hosts Hill briefings, panel discussions, luncheons and other events with partner organizations in order to educate policymakers and the public about the benefits of research to health and the economy. Panelists for our annual National Health Research Forum include the heads of the federal health agencies, former members of Congress and key stakeholders. Our annual Advocacy Awards Dinner honors individuals and organizations for their tireless advocacy on behalf of research.  

Remarkable discoveries in basic research, driven by astonishingly powerful new technologies and increasingly sophisticated electronic health records, can merge multiple data streams into a massive, secure computational “knowledge network” that enables researchers, companies, and physicians to develop precise prevention, diagnosis, or treatment strategies tailored to each individual, as well as transformative biological concepts, hypotheses and experiments.

Research!America and George Washington University's School of Media and Public Affairshave partnered to present Connecting the Dots: Effectively Communicating Science to Non-Scientists, a professional development program designed to enhance the ability of scientists to communicate their research to the public. This two-day, non-credit program will provide scientists, physicians, researchers and academics at the post-graduate level and above with the information and tools they need to effectively share their work.

You can change the image of things to come. But you can’t do it sitting on your hands … The science community should reach out to Congress and build bridges.
