Thanksgiving Greetings: Science and Society (Martin Packard, US) (John Eipper, USA, 11/29/09 6:53 pm)

Martin Packard writes: On this Thanksgiving weekend, I am thankful for the effort being made by many to bridge the gap between Science and Society. As I and many others have suggested, the support of all mankind is necessary to hopefully alleviate the hardships that will inevitable come with our changing ecosystem, fueled by population growth and dwindling resources. I have copied the essence of the February AAAS meeting as an example. 2010 Annual Meeting--Bridging Science and Society An international gathering of scientists, engineers, policy makers, and educators from the United States and more than 50 other countries will convene 18-22 February in San Diego, California, to advance the science and technology endeavors that profoundly affect the well-being of global society. One of the world's most recognized interdisciplinary scientific events, the AAAS Annual Meeting will focus on Bridging Science and Society, calling on the scientific community to not only strive to discover viable solutions to complex problems, but also to increase public knowledge and understanding of scientific principles and process... Dr. Peter Agre, AAAS President and Director, Malaria Research Institute, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Having worked with Alan I. Leshner, the AAAS CEO, I have confidence in the sincerity and the commitment of Dr Agre and the AAAS staff in furthering this effort. JE comments: It was a joy to spend time with Martin and Barbara Packard at WAIS '09--I trust they had a good Thanksgiving. Martin: are you planning to attend the 2010 AAAS meeting? If so, I'd be very grateful if you'd report to us on the event.
