Art Robinson And The Widespread Urine Test

Polk County GOP
/

Art Robinson's research at the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine focuses on the human metabolism, in the hope of finding treatments and cures for diseases.

The institute recently mailed requests for urine samples to every household in Josephine County.

Which raised a few eyebrows, because Robinson is more than a scientist, he's also the head of the Oregon Republican Party. 

He'll join us to explain the work in his non-political job.
