Join us as we look at measles outbreaks from a variety of perspectives on the disease, the vaccine, and the communities making decisions about their children’s health. Experts from historical, cultural and medical fields will weave together the science of measles with the science of human behavior in a program that gives a balanced account of the challenges and approaches to managing the disease.
