HILLEMAN Screening with Dr. Paul Offit Q&A at NFID Fall 2017 Clinical Vaccinology Course
For more than fifty years, US healthcare professionals have administered billions of vaccine doses safely with few serious adverse events. The development of vaccines as a landmark scientific achievement began over two hundred years ago.
Hosted by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, the 2-day Clinical Vaccinology Course focused on new developments and issues related to the use of vaccines. Expert faculty provided the latest information on vaccines, including updated recommendations for vaccinations across the lifespan, and innovative and practical strategies for ensuring timely and appropriate immunization. NFID hosted a screening of HILLEMAN: A Perilous Quest to Save the World’s Children on Saturday, November 4, 2017 in conjunction with the course.
A Q&A with Paul A. Offit, MD, Director, Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Maurice R. Hilleman Professor of Vaccinology and Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine occurred after the film.
