At our Jan. 7 meeting, District 7910 Chair for Polio Plus Joyce Graff used her broad experience in patient advocacy to demonstrate the parallels between the current fight against the Covid-19 Pandemic and the work done to eliminate polio from the earth. Although vaccines are now available, many are declining the opportunity to be vaccinated. Over the years Rotarians have overcome resistance to vaccinations by building "communities of trust" through education and example. Now Rotary is bringing its experience and expertise to this new threat. Joyce ended her talk with a video from Rotary International. Additionally, she invited us to view a You Tube presentation of a Covid forum sponsored by her club, the Rotary Club of Brookline, featuring several highly qualified panel members. Here are the links to the videos:
