Science GRO’s Heather Kelly was invited by the Society for Research on Adolescence (SRA) to present an advocacy training for psychological and other behavioral science researchers at its March annual meeting in Philadelphia. The emphasis in this session, “Beyond Journals: Advocacy as Dissemination,” was on getting scientists and graduate students to incorporate policy-relevant activities throughout their research programs and to engage in science advocacy beyond the typical academic arenas. Participants left with new advocacy strategies to employ at university, local government, state and federal levels.  University departments, APA divisions, and affiliated scientific associations are welcome to invite Science GRO staff to talk informally with and/or deliver more formal presentations on science advocacy to their organizations throughout the year.
