April 2023: Science Matters
In April 1955, the world celebrated the creation of the first-ever polio vaccine. Funded via crowdsourcing and hyped by the media, it was a huge achievement. A month later, the vaccine was taken off the market. This is the story of mass vaccination and a mass vaccine scare. It's a story of why science matters and of human achievement. A contributing member for the past four years and passionate about history and science, Josh Abadie will be our speaker, and he plans to share some of that passion with us.
