Rotarian director talks with Salk and Burke about polio eradication (video)

image
A round-table was held on May 5, 2017, with some amazing minds on the issue of polio eradication: Jennifer Jones, director of Rotary International; PETER SALK, IDM visiting professor and son of research pioneer Jonas Salk; and DONALD BURKE, school dean and University associate vice chancellor of global health. While on tour with Rollin' With Rotary, organization reps have been making communities aware that “We are this close to ending polio!” Their stop in Pittsburgh coincided with Salk’s visit and Burke’s availabilities, and the result was an amazing conversation about the history of the disease and the hope for world-wide elimination. View the Rotary video of the meeting, and read about our Salk legacy.
