Promote Advocacy – Support a Hayre Fellow

In March 2008 I travelled to the US as the inaugural Michael D. Hayre Fellow in Public Outreach. Through this opportunity I founded Speaking of Research and worked to improve the public’s understanding in public outreach. This year the new Hayre Fellow(s) will be able to try their hand at making a difference both nationally and in their local region – but to do so they need your help.

Right now several ambitious, intelligent students are hoping to launch innovative and promising grassroots initiatives in support of animal research in medicine. Each is a candidate for AMP’s Michael D. Hayre Fellowship in Public Outreach … But not all of these candidates will get a chance to carry out their campaigns. Right now, we are only able to fund one Hayre Fellow.

Help support a Hayre Fellow.You can turn that around.  Between now and July 15, we must raise $15,000 to fund an additional Hayre Fellow for the 2009-2010 academic year.  That would double the reach and impact of the program.  But we can’t do it without YOU!

So click here to read more, and I urge anyone who is able to help fund the next batch of Hayre’s fellows.
