If so, or even if not, you have to watch this story on the American Brain Drain from CBS' Sunday Morning. The show starts with a discussion of the trend for STEM foreign students to go back home after finishing their education rather than remaining in the US which was the norm in the past. I know you know that. The cool part of the story is what they see as the solution- which is to recruit more under-represented minority American students into the sciences and provide them with the supports they need to succeed. What a concept!

They highlight a program that does just that at San Francisco State run by FairerScience colleague Frank Bayliss. Watching it made me very happy- Hope it makes you happy too.
