Science Cafe to focus on Immunizations

Nov 12, 2012

Childhood and adult immunizations are the focus of tomorrow’s Omaha Science Café

Dr. Ally Dering-Anderson, Clinical Assistant Professor at the UNMC College of Pharmacy, is the guest speaker. 

She’ll discuss types of diseases people are immunized against and the benefits of adult and child immunizations. 

Dr. Dering-Anderson says she’ll also talk about the changes in mortality rates as a result of vaccines.

"And we’re going to look at vaccine preventable diseases.  It would be remarkably short-sided not to comment on the re-birth, if you will, of some of these previously well-controlled diseases and why that might be happening.  Pertussis might be the most noteworthy.”

The Science Café is tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. at the Slowdown.
