Sabin President Peter Hotez, M.D, Ph.D., was honored yesterday evening with B’nai B’rith International’s Distinguished Achievement Award for advancing science and humanity, his commitment to enlightened leadership, and community service.

Meet Asim. In his low-income urban neighborhood in Pakistan, it can seem as if the one thing more widespread than typhoid is misinformation about typhoid. Crucial information on the prevention of the disease through handwashing, drinking clean water or receiving a vaccination is often missing in places where typhoid is endemic, leaving kids like Asim at high risk of suffering unnecessarily from preventable diseases.

For many of us born and raised in the United States, vaccines are a familiar part of our doctors’ appointments. But most of us don’t know that there is a complex logistical operation dictating exactly what vaccines we receive and when.

Dr. Bruce Gellin, M.D., M.P.H., will join the Sabin Vaccine Institute as President, Global Immunization, on March 1, 2017. Read the press release. Dr. Gellin, a 15-year U.S. Department of Health and Human Services veteran, has served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health and Director of the National Vaccine Program Office since 2002.
