(BLOOMINGTON) - Former 9th district Indiana Congressman Lee Hamilton will speak at Indiana University Bloomington Wednesday afternoon as part of a course on science and public policy.
Hamilton, who gained recent notoriety as co-chair of the Iraq Study Group with former Secretary of State James Baker, will be giving his speech at the Indiana Memorial Union a little after 3:00PM Wednesday.
IU associate professor Faiz Rahman started the course Hamilton is speaking to to help future scientists communicate with government officials, policy makers and news media.
