April 20, 2017: LMA Marches for Science

This Saturday members of the LMA community will gather on the Harvard Quad at the Medical School to begin their march to downtown Boston in support of the nationwide March for Science.

Join colleagues, neighbors and new friends to march for a celebration of science.  "It's not only about scientists and politicians; it is about the very real role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world.  Nevertheless, the march has generated a great deal of conversation around whether or not scientists should involve themselves in politics. In the face of an alarming trend toward discrediting scientific consensus and restricting scientific discovery, we might ask instead: can we afford not to speak out in its defense?"

11 am Saturday at the Harvard Medical School Quad at Longwood and Avenue Louis Pasteur.
