The Harvard GSAS Science Policy Group and DMS Policy Path went to Washington, DC from Wednesday, May 7 to Friday, May 9, 2019. We visited a number government agencies such as NASA and the CDC. During this visit were fortunate to meet with Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY 4th District) and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse's AAAS fellow Ryan Edwards. The goal of this trip was to help participants explore career paths in policy and government by introducing them to scientists and policymakers working on science policy and beyond.
Check out our trip report that includes detailed information about what we learned about each agency we visited.
