This presentation, as part of the CICATS Luncheon Seminar Series, was hosted by CICATS and the Kavli Foundation.

CICATS CEO, Dr. Cato T. Laurencin, introduced Mary, who spoke about the importance of advocacy and how scientists should do more to build relationships with their elected officials and policymakers. She referenced the recent passage of the “21st Century Cures” bill as proof that forging that relationship can produce positive results.
