Details 

VUSM Medical Ethics, Law, and Policy (MELP) is a group dedicated to exploring how ethics and our societal structure affect medical practice. This week, we will be hosting Dr. Kathryn Edwards from the Vanderbilt Vaccine Center to share about her experiences and the current challenges to vaccination. Dr. Edwards is the Sarah H. Sell and Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair in Pediatrics, the director of the Division of Pediatric Clinical Research, and the director of the Vanderbilt Vaccine Research Program. Vaccination is extremely relevant to our clinical practice so we hope you'll join us to learn more from one of the nation's leading vaccinologists!
