This blog post is about: On Earth Day, April 22nd 2017, scientists from around the world swapped lab coats for rain coats to march in the rainy streets of Washington, D.C. They were accompanied by science enthusiasts from various walks of life, all united by one message—science matters! Students, post-doctoral associates, faculty and staff from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine made their way down to the United States Capitol to lend their voice to the cause. As Dr. Christa Heyward, a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology said, “there is strength in numbers.” With an estimated attendance of over a million people worldwide, 100,000 of which marched in D.C. alone, the collective voice that spoke out in support of science was loud.
