You might not be able to make it to Rio de Janeiro, but you can join the conference“Smallpox Eradication after 30 years: Lessons, Legacies and Innovations.” Organizers are the SabinVaccine Institute, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz, and the Fogarty International Center. The conference dates are August 24-27.
Live streaming video and a conference schedule are available at this link. (Rio is one hour later than Eastern Daylight Time.) We’re especially looking forward to Session 1, Lessons from Smallpox-Endemic countries: Illuminating experiences in program conception and execution, which is moderated by DA Henderson, MD. See our interview with him here: The History of Vaccines Interviews DA Henderson, MD.
