Catherine Steffel Selected to Attend Catalyzing Advocacy in Science Engineering 2018 Workshop
Catherine Steffel, a third year PhD candidate in Medical Physics, has been selected to attend the Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) Workshop in Washington, D.C. this March.
Each year, the Graduate School selects two graduate students to attend the workshop. Workshop attendees learn about science policy and advocacy and tools for effective science communication. On their last day in Washington, D.C., attendees meet with their elected representatives on Capitol Hill.
The Graduate School funds selected students' travel and related expenses. The CASE workshop is sponsored by a coalition of scientific groups, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
