Jed Levine, one of our panelists and Executive Vice President and Director of Programs and Services for Alzheimer’s Association, NYC Chapter, encourages you to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Oct. 18th. You can become an Advocate of Alzheimer’s Disease or a member of the Junior Committee of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Emanuel DiCicco-Bloom, MD, a representative from inside academia on our panel and Professor in the Departments of Neuroscience & Cell Biology and Pediatrics at Rutger’s Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, urges you to apply to Capitol Hill Daythrough SfN. Following Hill Day in 2014, US Senator Robert Menendez visited Manny’slab, gave a talk, and met with children with autism. Thus, proving that you can get the attention of a legislator who can then advocate for your research! Please contact Manny if you would like to discuss how to become involved in advocacy while running (or working in) an academic lab.
