DAY 2: Science and Policy Summit

Panel 1 - Science in Presidential Campaigns: How does leadership factor as a
barrier to turning good research into good policy? What impact would it have
if we held our Presidential candidates to account on the evidence-base for their
respective policy proposals?

Panel 2 - Preventive Medicine & Health Promotion: A talk modelled after the
ICONOCLASTS documentaries bringing together two researchers studying the
social determinants of health and the P4MI model of medicine that will use the
predictive power of bioinformatics to revolutionize preventive medicine.
Poster Competition: One of last year’s most popular events, a poster competition
presenting the research of some of UW’s most promising graduate students.
