CDC Webinar – Strategies for Addressing Vaccine Misinformation in the Practice Wednesday, August 28, 2019, from 1-2pm EDT
With the recent outbreaks of measles across the U.S., ensuring parents have access to accurate and credible information about vaccines is key to increasing vaccine acceptance. As a trusted source of information about vaccines, healthcare professionals can play a key role in establishing trust and educating parents and patients on the important role that vaccines play in protecting against serious diseases.
In this webinar, practicing healthcare professionals will share their evidence-based strategies for recommending vaccines and addressing vaccine hesitancy in their practice. Chanie Sternberg, President & CEO of RefuahHealth Center, and Dr. Corinna Manini, Refuah’s Chief Medical Officer, have worked to cultivate trust with parents and patients in their practice to reassure them that vaccines are safe and effective. RefuahHealth Center is a federally-qualified health center in New York that serves patients in communities affected by ongoing measles outbreaks. Dr. Todd Wolynn is a practicing pediatrician and CEO at Kids Plus Pediatrics in Pittsburgh, PA. Dr. Wolynn has been a vocal advocate for the importance of effective communication to address parental hesitancy about vaccines.
