Title: From Research To Public Policies

Speaker: Martelle Esposito, President and CEO of Mothership

Location: SpeakEZ Lounge | 600 Monroe Ave. Grand Rapids NW 49503

Date: Thursday, June 14

Time: 8PM


Event Description:

Public policy offers a way to make an impact on a large scale. While to many of us, it makes sense to develop public policies based on sound scientific research, to others, science matters less. As scientists and citizen activists, how you approach and engage with the policy-making process is critical to successfully creating science-based policies. During this talk, we will explore ways to approach translating scientific research into public policy. Using examples from nutrition policy, we’ll talk about the nuances of opportunity windows and timing, storytelling and framing messages, and partnerships and grassroots engagement.
