When Science Isn't Enough: Why Some People Have Stopped

Vaccinating Their Kids


The recent outbreak of measles, a highly contagious disease that was previously eliminated in the United States, has reignited the debate around vaccination. Public misconceptions and misinformed spokespeople have led to anti-vaccination movements and vaccine hesitancy that jeopardize the health and well-being of communities, both in the United States and in Europe. 

 

Join Ogilvy Washington and our panel of experts to discuss how education and communications play a key role in informing parents about the importance of vaccinations and its impact within the community. Our panelists include:

 

  • Dr. Jon Andrus, Executive Vice President at the Sabin Vaccine Institute  
  • Dr. Louis Cooper, Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics, Columbia University; Academy of Pediatrics past President 
  • Dr. Linda Fu, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Children's National Health System of The George Washington University School of Medicine

 

Discussion will cover the causes of the anti-vaccination movement; what the most credible messages and stories are that could change minds and hearts, as well as who they should come from; the role protecting communities play in parents' decisions about vaccination; and how we can start changing behaviors to impact immunization in a positive way.


The discussion will be moderated by Tony Silva, Executive Vice President of Ogilvy Washington's Social Change Group. 

 

Join us on Thursday, March 19th, at 8:00AM for a light breakfast and networking, followed by our panel from 8:30 AM-10:00 AM.

 

This is a free event, but RSVP is required.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living launched What is Brain Health?, a cognitive health awareness communications campaign which seeks to change and amplify the national conversation surrounding brain health. With so much fear and stigma surrounding brain health, many Americans are avoiding the topic. As a result, the What is Brain Health? campaign seeks to normalize the idea through a positive and optimistic tone and introduces the concept of “brain health” as a key component of overall health. The campaign encourages 60-70 year olds to learn more by visiting www.BrainHealth.gov and join the conversation through the campaign social media channels, local events, and partnerships.
