The Washington Science Policy Network invites candidates from the 5th Congressional District to join members of the community and local scientists to a dialogue about how to keep Eastern Washington healthy. We’ll hear about science-informed solutions to problems like the opioid crisis, meeting rural healthcare needs, and mitigating the health impacts of a changing climate. We welcome residents of the district to come to learn about science and hear from your candidates. We’ve invited both candidates for the 5th District race: Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Lisa Brown, and you’ll be hearing from state legislative candidates from both parties.
We look forward to an evening of bipartisan dialogue and civic engagement on issues important to our community: research, public health policy, and support for science.
