RYP Happy Hour: Mingle with the Fellows

As we round the corner into 2020, questions about politics, the environment and public health are at the forefront of our national conversation. The Roundtable Young Professionals hosted happy hour at The Rustic. Guests enjoyed bites and mingled with Baker Institute experts about pressing policy issues, including what can be done about plastic waste, the interdependence of science and public policy, the Green New Deal proposal, trends in local Texas elections and the opioid epidemic.
