Join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center and Rotary International for a hybrid event commemorating World Polio Day 2023: Let’s Make Polio History.
This event will be an opportunity to celebrate progress in the fight against the disease and discuss the obstacles that remain to achieve a polio-free world.
Learn about what gives us hope in the pathway to eradication, how polio eradication is supporting women on the frontlines, and how the program continues to innovate and adapt to changing situations.
Engage with Ezra Teshome, PDG and a local Rotarian who has been leading vaccination campaigns in Ethiopia for over 20 years, and Tehniyat Khan from the Gates Foundation's polio team working to end polio in Afghanistan. The conversation will be moderated by Penny Legate, former TV anchor for KIRO TV.
