As the regulatory environment surrounding public health care, toxicology, and science (in general) rapidly changes, the voices of scientists have perhaps never been more important in influencing these policy debates. For example, many states have adapted “right to try” laws and/or have recently legalized medical (and recreational) cannabis use; however, Federal Laws do not necessarily mirror State Laws. Additionally, the balance between growing the economy and protecting the environment is also in a precarious position. This symposium will emphasize why/how scientists should/can get involved in science policy, advocacy, and regulation through careers in academia, government, and/or industry.
