Vaccines are among the most effective ways to prevent serious disease at any age, but a number of misperceptions about immunizations have sparked a national debate. The next Your Health presentation at Northern Michigan University will address this issue. Dr. B. Keith English, chair of the Department of Pediatrics and Human Development at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, will present “Millions of Lives Saved: The Incredible Impact of Immunizations.” His talk begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 23, in Reynolds Recital Hall. Admission is free.
English achieved national acclaim for leading the Memphis community response for the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic while at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. His awards include “Pediatrician of the Year” from the Tennessee chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Your Health is a collaborative community event sponsored by NMU, UP Health System-Marquette and MSU College of Human Medicine.
