***A Message from our PA-AAP Intern – Please Participate!!***

Hello, my name is Ana Landi Pereira. I am pursuing a Master’s in Public Health from Temple University and will graduate this May. I am interning with PAIC/PA-AAP for my fieldwork. For my fieldwork project, I chose to develop an Immunization Toolkit for the Pennsylvania Immunization Coalition. The Immunization Toolkit focuses on providing the community with knowledge and understanding about vaccine-preventable diseases. The Immunization Toolkit offers information about vaccination, PA immunization policies, a sample letter to advocate for immunization policy, and additional support. I have also developed two surveys, Pre-survey and Post-survey which will help me collect data and analyze the effect of the Immunization Toolkit.Thank you for taking the time to look over the Immunization Toolkit and complete the surveys. It will help me finish my thesis and graduate this May.
