“Making Science Policy” panel discussion

Many of the decisions facing legislators require a level of scientific or technical expertise that very few have. Examples of such decisions in the field of health include: stem cell research, vaccination programs, biotechnology funding, and soil and water contamination.

This workshop will focus on the underlying decision processes that Michigan policy-makers use to protect the public health of Michigan’s citizens.  The panel includes:

Rebekah Warren, Michigan Senator, representing Ann Arbor
Bill Rustem, Director of Strategy for Governor Rick Snyder
Steve Angelotti, Associate Director for the Michigan Senate Fiscal Agency
Dr. Joe Schwarz, Physician, UM Professor, former Michigan Senator and U.S. Representative
Dr. Gil Omenn, University of Michigan Professor of Internal Medicine, Human Genetics, and Public Health (moderator)

Friday, 9 March
1110 Weill Hall (Betty Ford Auditorium)
2:30-4:30 PM

Sponsored by the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program.
