This webinar summarizes research findings around the causes and effects of vaccine hesitancy, and proposes policy changes that could lead to increased vaccination rates and greater protection for the health of our children.

Dr. Feemster is a faculty member at PolicyLab and an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Infectious Diseases at CHOP and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
