On the Pulse of Public Policy

Informative, Passionate: PPW 2012

More than 350 Academy members from all parts of the country were educated and inspired April 15 to 17 at the Academy's 2012 Public Policy Workshop in Arlington, Va. Highlights included a powerful address from Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, head of one of the largest cabinet agencies that employs many Academy members. Secretary Vilsack made it clear that, for Academy members, the time is now to make our greatest impact on food, nutrition and health. His talk, and the passionate engagement of members during the question-and-answer portion, was just one highlight of a meeting that many called the best PPW they had ever attended. More details on PPW 2012 will be sent to members next week.
