Immunization in the U.S. – the Best or Worst in its Class?


Join us for the third lecture of the Medical Ethics Series on January 24, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. at the University of Texas Medical School Auditorium room 3.001. 

Dr. Anne Schuchat will present the lecture Immunization in the US – the Best or Worst in its Class? Dr. Schuchat, Assistant Surgeon General, United States Public Health Service, will discuss immunization patterns across the lifespan, vaccine-preventable disease trends, and analysis of where and why we are failing. She will explore the reasons why pertussis is acting up, the factors that got HPV vaccine off track, and what UNICEF’s health equity drive has to do with Houston’s toddlers.
