GaBio To Hold Gubernatorial Candidate Forums in May

ATLANTA (April 12, 2010) – Life sciences economic development, science education in k-12 schools and the impact of federal health care reform will be the major topics of discussion at Democratic and Republican gubernatorial candidate forums in May organized by Georgia Bio (GaBio) and hosted by Kennesaw State University’s (KSU) College of Science and Mathematics.

“These forums will give Georgia’s gubernatorial candidates an opportunity to address three issues that are critical to our state’s future: the significance of high-paying, advanced technology job growth; the importance of science and math education; and the impact of federal health care reform,” said Charles Craig, Georgia Bio President.

“Kennesaw State is honored to partner with Georgia Bio in hosting what we expect to be a lively exchange of ideas on critical topics,” said Laurence I. Peterson, dean of KSU’s College of Science and Mathematics. “The debates will spotlight the important life sciences profession, as well as issues that matter to the students, faculty and staff within our college and the community at large. We look forward to welcoming the gubernatorial candidates and special guests to KSU for these important events.”
