FABBS looks for opportunities to host events that highlight our sciences and their contributions to a range of challenges facing the nation.

Events may be held on Capitol Hill to raise awareness about our sciences with Congressional staff. Alternatively, FABBS may organize events with federal science administrators to discuss opportunities for moving forward important areas of science.
