Feature Article: Ben Franklin — Pro-vaccine Before Vaccines Were Invented?

Published on Feb 16, 2016 in Parents PACK, from the Vaccine Education Center of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
This month’s edition of the Parents PACK newsletter was inspired by Dr. Paul Offit’s receipt of the 2016 Benjamin Franklin Founder Award. Dr. Offit is the director of the Vaccine Education Center. Award recipients are chosen for their significant accomplishments in a field of Franklin’s interest; this year’s focus was public health. We hope that after reading about several of Dr. Franklin’s contributions, you will be inspired to share ways that you have made or are currently making your community a better place for all.
