For our final event for our JGH Speaker Series at Columbia University, BCB Director Nathan Lam invited Dr. James Colgrove for a conversation on the effect of political polarization on attitudes towards vaccination. Because public health mandates are greatly uncentralized, he reminded us that as future physicians, researchers, and policy-makers, we have a very unique role in shaping scientific attitudes in our own communities.
