Inaugural Vaccination Acceptance Research Network (VARN) Annual Conference
The Sabin Vaccine Institute is excited to announce that the dates for the VARN Conference (#VARN2022) have been set – join us March 1-3, 2022! This inaugural meeting will be both open to the public and virtual in nature and serve as a space for exploration, research results sharing and discussing key priorities and opportunities across the ecosystem. Through the conference, Sabin will support the wide dissemination of a growing body of knowledge and evidence-informed strategies for action.
The conference Call for Papers (CFP) was launched on November 4, to help shape and facilitate presentations and panel discussions designed to inform the real-time challenges and efforts of local, national, regional, and global community actors in attendance. We invite you to apply and share amongst your networks. The CFP closed on December 15 and the selection of papers is expected in late January.
