Next PCAST Meeting Wants You To Bundle Up and Wash Your Hands

The next meeting of the President’s Council of Advisers on Science and Technology (PCAST) will take place in Washington, D.C. on March 27th.  As is the custom, the meeting will be webcast, and you can access that link from the meetings section of the PCAST website.

The draft agenda available is pretty thin on details.  There will be two subject matter sessions, one on Arctic policy and the other on antibiotic resistance.  But there are no panelists listed.  PCAST has addressed the topic of antibiotic resistance before, releasing a report last fall.  This session is scheduled for one hour and fifteen minutes, which may mean that some kind of follow-up project is under consideration.  Since the release of that report was tied to follow-up actions by the Administration, some kind of progress report may be part of this session.  You’ll have to watch to find out.
