Date:5/11/2011

n opportunity and a challenge for scientists as well as journalists.

"Science changes our lives, and yet that is rarely seen as news. How do we make exciting and groundbreaking science more newsworthy?" said Jack Watters, MD, VP for External Medical Affairs at Pfizer Inc and a Research!America board member. "Of course, some of the best science is done when no one is looking, but I'd like to encourage us, as a nation, to look more closely and talk about science."

Further findings from the Maryland poll include:

  • 34% cited obesity as the single most important health issue facing Americans today, followed by the cost of health care (17%);
  • 94% think education and training in science, technology, engineering and mathematics is important to U.S. competitiveness and future economic prosperity;
  • 93% think it is important that elected officials at all levels listen to advice from scientists and public health professionals to address potential health threats;
  • 87% say it is important for Maryland to be a leader in science and medical research; and
  • 89% say it is important for Maryland to be a leader in public health, prevention and wellness research.

"Marylanders are right on target in identifying the key public health issues facing our state today, and they are well aware of the need for leadership in public health and prevention research," said Robert S. Gold, PhD, DrPH, dean, University of Maryland School of Public Health. "They also see as part of the solution that policy makers must be informed in order to address potential health threats and that we must provide training for Maryland residents and students in these critical areas."

The poll also indicates that Maryland residents see great economic value for their state from research: 83% say spending money on scientific research is important to Maryland's economy, in terms of jobs and incomes; and 90% think it is important for Maryland to create
