Darwin Day!

Saturday, February 12 from 4-6 pm

Together we will watch the award-winning film Hilleman: A Perilous Quest to save the World’s Children. This documentary tells the inspiring story of Dr. Maurice Hilleman, a man with a singular, unwavering focus: to eliminate the diseases of children. From his poverty-stricken youth on the plains of Montana, he came to prevent pandemic flu, invent the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, and develop the first-ever vaccine against human cancer. Responsible for more than half of the vaccines children receive today, he is credited with saving more than eight million lives every year.

Stay on zoom afterwards for a discussion!
