The APS Office of Public Affairs (OPA) was established to facilitate communication between physicists, the public, and government on scientific issues of concern to APS members and to the nation as a whole.
OPA coordinates the interaction between APS in the federal government, directs the efforts of the Physics in Government Network (our national group of grassroots scientist-activists), and sponsors Congressional and Media Fellowships.
