If you are wondering why risk getting the COVID-19 vaccine; how to decipher the fake news on the immunizations; or curious why businesses should be thinking about COVID-19 vaccines…this podcast is for you. Prof Scott Ratzan and Prof Heidi Larson are two of the most experienced thinkers on the topic of vaccines that the world has. Their entire careers have arguably been leading up to this point.
Scott has dedicated his work to the communication of health issues – he is founding Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Health Communication: International Perspectives. His CV includes organisations ranging from Johnson & Johnson to co-chairing the UN Secretary General’s Innovation Working Group for Every Woman Every Child and Harvard Kennedy School. He is on the Board of Global Health for the U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine
While Heidi has focused much of her career on global health, human rights, and social mobilization, she is currently Professor of Anthropology, Risk and Decision Science at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and is the Clinical Professor of Health Metrics Sciences, University of Washington. She has headed Global Immunisation Communication at UNICEF and served on the World Health Organisation’s SAGE Working Group on vaccine hesitancy.
Scott and Heidi are on a mission to try to share the realities and truths on the vaccines and bring organisations together to ensure as many people as possible globally have access to the vaccines.
Together they are spearheading Business Partners to CONVINCE, a global communication and education initiative to promote COVID-19 vaccine acceptance among private sector employers and employees – and would like to invite you to find out more.
CONVINCE is backed by the USCIB Foundation, and Business Partners for Sustainable Development (BPSD).
To find out more join us for the Business Fights Poverty ReBuild Better Summit on 21 January 2021. Scott and other global experts will be at the free event - exploring ‘where now?’
