Philadelphia Association for Critical Thinking (PhACT) at Community College of Philadelphia, Room C2-28 2:00 PM.

Dr. Paul Offit, M.D. will present a documentary film with Q&A Session to follow:
This hour long video production by Dr. Paul Offit and Don Mitchell tells the story of the greatest scientist of the 20th century, and no one knows his name. This documentary tells the inspiring story of Dr. Maurice R. Hilleman, a man with a singular, unwavering focus: to eliminate the diseases of children. From his poverty-stricken youth on the plains of Montana, he came to prevent pandemic flu, develop the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, and invent the first-ever vaccine against human cancer. Now through exclusive interviews with Dr. Hilleman and his peers, rare archival footage, and 3-D animation, this film puts a human face to vaccine science, revealing the character that drove this bold, complex, and heroic man.
