"The Summit offers a critical opportunity to discuss how we can use scientific evidence to shape policies and practice as we work towards a healthy future. In a political environment that frequently chooses to ignore the valuable insights offered by scientific research and innovation, our best hope for the future is to work together as a community to promote and defend the role of science in our lives."
