In the year since President Trump took office, a new wave of social movements has rippled across the country. March for Science Atlanta brings together scientists, data geeks and average citizens to push for policies that support and reflect research. The group will hold its annual Rally for Science April 14.
The Rally for Science keynote speaker is Emory University professor Linda DeGutis. She previously served as director of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control at the CDC.
DeGutis will speak on the importance of gun violence research. In March, President Donald Trump signed a spending bill that includes a provision granting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) authority to conduct research on gun violence.
