On Tuesday, March 20, the ACS Senior Chemists Committee hosted, in partnership with the ACS Development Office, its breakfast during the ACS National Meeting held in New Orleans, LA. The keynote address was given by Dr. Calvin Mackie, CEO of STEM NOLA - a program focused on efforts to engage inner-city communities and policymakers about STEM. His presentation was well-received by the attendees and a request was made to share some of the work being done as a post-national meeting highlight. If you're interested in learning more about ways to bring this STEM program to your local sections, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
