Where can you find dozens of parents in a room with Nobel prize-winning scientists? At The Rockefeller University's one-of-a-kind Parents and Science initiative. Launched in 2007, the initiative helps parents learn more about research in childhood health and behavior by meeting face-to-face with Rockefeller scientists.
Parents & Science faculty advisor Bruce McEwen tells MetroFocus host Rafael Pi Roman, "I think Rockefeller feels that it needs to communicate what it does, not only so that people recognize and will support its mission, but also because it has an obligation to tell the public and participate in educating the public in a time when science is perhaps suffering somewhat from public scrutiny in terms of funding."
