We invite all faculty, staff and students to participate.

Where: BUSM/GMS will gather at the Boston Public Library (Copley side) and proceed to Boston Common for the national March for Science rally.
Guest Speaker: Alicia Wooton, PhD Candidate in Molecular & Translational Medicine at Boston University. She is deaf and uses both American Sign Language and spoken English as modes of communication. She is heavily involved in the deaf community as an advocate and serves on the Board of local non-profit, DEAF, Inc. Alicia’s interests include lung biology and how the immune system functions against pathogens. She cares about making science communication accessible to all minority groups, especially those in the deaf community who want to pursue science careers.
