Immunization Panel
About this Event

Vaccines save millions of lives, yet in low- and middle-income countries, large numbers of children go unvaccinated mainly because of limited availability and access to services. But in some countries, an emerging threat is misinformation, largely through social media. Anti-vaccine groups have effectively exploited social media, creating confusion and stroking fears among parents, potentially undermining progress in reaching all children with vaccines. For example, global cases of measles have surged to alarmingly high levels in 2019, including countries which had previously been declared measles free.

The Evening will consist of an enging panel featuring:

  • Marga Hewko of Rotary International
  • Dr. James Conqay, Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist
  • Dr.Patrick Remington, Professor Emeritus, Department of Population Health Sciences and Director of UW-Madison Preventive Medicine Residency Program
  • Stephanie Schauer, Ph.D., Immunization Program Manager, Wisconsin Immunization Program
