The Missouri Science and Technology Policy Fellows (MOST), and in collaboration with MU Graduate Professional Council, Science on Tap, Pi Sigma Alpha, and Associated Students of the University of Missouri, announce an open invitation to a Candidate Forum on Science and Policy. The forum will be held on October 10th from 6-8 PM in 114 Physics Hall, University of Missouri.

The candidate forum features Boone County state candidates and scientists from local universities. The forum will begin with brief presentations, questions, and discussions from scientists whose research directly impacts the State of Missouri. Scientists will discuss how their research interfaces with policy and explore implications for creating sustainable agricultural and food systems. Each candidate will then present his or her platform, focusing on science and technology policy issues. Candidates will be asked science policy–related questions as generated from your contributions at http://mostpolicyfellows.org.

Attendance is free and open to the public. Candidates Dr. Maren Bell Jones (D-44), Cheri Toalson-Reisch (R-44), Kip Kendrick (D-45), Martha Stevens (D-46), and Adrian Plank (D-47) are confirmed to attend. Light refreshments will be served.

MOST is a pre- and post-doctoral Science and Technology Policy Fellowship that assists with evidence-based policy decisions in the State of Missouri. MOST Fellows are dedicated to increasing public awareness of the importance of science and driving policy discussions affecting public health, the environment, national security and the economy.
