January 10 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Building the Pro-Vaccine Movement: Examples of Effective Advocacy
The latest session of Online & In-the-Know is for new and experienced advocates for vaccines and strong public health policies. The presenter will introduce SAFE Communities Coalition and explain SAFE’s work to develop state-level coalitions driven by volunteer parents, family members, health professionals, nonprofit organizations, faith groups, industry partners, and other advocates for health and wellness. She’ll talk about how she got involved in advocacy after her son contracted chicken pox as an infant, provide examples from states where advocacy efforts have been successful, and explain how everyone can — and should — stand up for public health in our state houses.
Presented by: Caitlin Gilmet, Communications Director, SAFE Communities Coalition
