Episode 18: Science Policy and Activism with Dr. Frances Colón


Straight from a Scientist headed south for Spring Break and got a chance to speak with Dr. Frances Colón.  Dr. Colón served as science adviser to the State Department under the Obama administration.  We discuss the responsibility scientists have to communicate their findings directly to the public, and how scientists can enact change by putting pressure on civic leaders.
