On November 20, 2009, the Healthcare Emergency Management program participated in Communicating Influenza Vaccination Evidence and Knowledge Base, a workshop hosted by George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. The HEM program sent two professors and two masters students to the workshop.

Along with representatives from NASA, ISMR, Inova Health Systems and the CDC, our students participated in panel discussions and provided a critical paper on Mandating Vaccinations.

The photos above show Dr. Kip Thomas, director of the HEM program, presenting on his panel: Ethical and Legal considerations when communicating information on risks/benefits of vaccination.
