Science Society Hill Days

Science Society Hill Days

Hill Days are typically annual events held in Washington D.C. or a state capital. Science societies gather their members from across the country to meet with members of Congress or state legislators to discuss scientific research. The science societies usually provide advocacy workshops and trainings, followed by meetings with the policymakers and their staff to dialogue about the research they conduct and implications for constituents and the larger society.
