Heading to Atlanta to Learn More About Global Vaccines


I recently received a National Press Foundation and UN Foundation Global Vaccines Press Fellowship and will be in Atlanta from Wednesday to Thursday this week to learn more about global vaccines from the leading global health organizations, non-profits, and NGOs in the world. The other press fellows and I will learn about everything about vaccine-preventable diseases to hearing hear vaccine stories on the ground from developing countries.

Slated on the agenda are leading experts and executives from WHO, UNICEF, the Gates Foundation, the UN Foundation, the CDC and IVAC. We will also attend the official launch of Shot at Life at the Georgia Aquarium on Thursday.

Please be sure to follow this blog all week as I will be sharing an extensive amount of information about global vaccines. You can also hear more on @socialgoodmoms and facebook.com/socialgoodmoms.
