Saturday, May 19, 2007, 11:30 AM

Chair: Ellen Kraig, Univ. of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio; Chair, Committee on Public Affairs


Speakers:

Gail A. Bishop, Univ. of Iowa; Member, Committee on Public Affairs

Informing lawmakers about the importance of funding biomedical research is a key function of the AAI public affairs program. But we depend on AAI members to help us communicate this crucial message. If you've ever gone to Capitol Hill to advocate for research, or if you would ever like to do so, or if you just want some good political laughs, join us for this informative and potentially irreverent seminar.


Speakers (from left to right) -- 1st row: Gary Kline, Legislative Assistant to Rep. Brian Bilbray (R-50th, CA); CPA Member Bonnie Blomberg; Lauren Gross, Director of Public Policy and Government Affairs, AAI; CPA Chair Ellen Kraig; CPA Member Gail Bishop; 2nd row: Jon Retzlaff, Director of Legislative Relations, FASEB; CPA Member Lou Justement; CPA Member Bill Green
