We invite you to join the AAAS DoSER program for a conversation about rest and how relaxing can transform ourselves and our society. Together we will consider rest and relaxation not only in terms of personal benefit, but also how sleep and rest are viewed in society and how they can improve health and further social justice.

This October, a delegation from the Cuban Academy of Sciences traveled to Washington, D.C. with the aim of creating a path for future collaboration between scientific communities in Cuba and the U.S.

Americans and Cubans learned from success stories and brainstormed how to address shared challenges at a high-level symposium on the future of the United States-Cuba scientific cooperation in Havana from March 20-21, 2023.

Earlier this year, National Institutes of Health director Francis Collins announced that he would be retiring from his position. Collins has served under three different presidents and spent decades working in the field as a physician and geneticist.

On June 15, 2021, the AAAS DoSER program hosted a free virtual symposium on science’s impact on human life and society and how faith communities are engaging with forefront science.
