Keynote Presentation: COVID-19 Vaccines: Science Versus Antiscience

George R. Brown Convention Center - General Assembly

Sponsoring Company: Shell Oil Company

Let’s first explore the global significance of a patent-free, low-cost “people’s vaccine.” How can this low-cost coronavirus vaccine be used as an effective weapon against COVID by reaching the unvaccinated in poorer countries? How can we address both vaccine equity and the rising antiscience movement that threatens global health security? Next we’ll explore how we can empower teachers to have a more active role in addressing emerging diseases, future pandemics, and similar emergent scenarios while inspiring generations and supporting the well-being of our students and future societies.
