  • "The pacing was perfect. I'm so glad that there was three breaks to ask the questions. Good group of participants asking great questions."
  • "The presenter and slides were clear. Many questions were answers throughout the webinar. The examples and visuals were amazing! I enjoyed the misconception clarifications."
  • "The simplicity of vaccines is a beautiful reminder that science literacy and understanding is so important. I enjoyed the personal refresher of content knowledge, but also feel empowered to share this with others given the lack of scientific literacy we are seeing play out in society."
