The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History presents “Gardasil Vaccine-One Less Statistic; One Less . . . Hoax?” as part of the Museum’s Natural History of Health series.
The introduction of this new vaccine has required parents, young women, doctors, health officials and legislators to assess individual healthcare needs, patient healthcare standards and overall healthcare policy.
The controversy prompted by this vaccine will be explored by Scott L. Wetstone, M.D., Associate Professor at the UConn School of Medicine’s Department of Community Medicine and Health Care at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 21 in the Biology/Physics Building, Room 130, on UConn’s Storrs Campus.
In his talk, Dr. Wetstone will demonstrate how using the basic tools of epidemiology can help each of us assess the true level of risk for any health issue and to help make prudent healthcare decisions.
