We’ve Been Here Before: Distribution of the Polio Vaccine
March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We can learn a lot from history, if we choose to. In the 1950’s, mass vaccinations helped eradicate polio from the United States. Join the discussion of how we conquered this crippling disease 70 years ago with an expert panel including René F. Najera, DrPH, College of Physicians of Philadelphia and Editor of the History of Vaccines; Chris Crenner, M.D., Ph.D., Hudson-Major Professor and Chair at the University of Kansas Medical Center, and a representative of Rotary International.

The Distribution of the Polio Vaccine Zoom program is a partnership with the public libraries in Atchison, Basehor, Bonner Springs, Lansing, Leavenworth, Linwood and Tonganoxie, and the Northeast Kansas Library System.
