Session Description

US Capitol

Do you wish policy was more evidence-based, but you get frustrated trying to boil your article into bullet points? Not sure how to fulfill that mandate to educate policymakers in your state and in DC? Come to this session and learn from current and former Hill staff about how to package your information in a way most useful to policymakers and most likely to be translated to policy, while maintaining fidelity to your findings.

This event is closed to the press.
