Congratulations Kelsey!

We are so glad that Kelsey Stoneberg from our lab has been awarded an American Society of Mammalogists (ASM) Student Science Policy Award for 2019. Kelsey will now be able to attend the Congressional Visits Day (CVD) program in Washington, DC on March 25-27. ASM states that, "During the event, awardees will receive policy and communication training to prepare for meetings with congressional policymakers and federal agency scientists concerning research and budget priorities. A full day will be spent on Capitol Hill meeting with members of Congress and their staff to discuss the importance of federal investment in the biological sciences...They also will receive an award certificate upon completion of the public policy leadership training."
We are so excited to see what Kelsey will learn from this experience! Scientists with insight into policy can help increase the impact research can have.
