ASM on Capitol Hill
The Committee on Microbiological Issues Impacting Minorities (CMIIM) traveled to Washington, DC and attended a Hill Day planned by PSAB staff.  They met with members of Congress and their relevant staff.  If you are interested in meeting with your members to discuss issues of importance to the microbiological sciences e-mail advocacy@asmusa.org.
