Baldwin's Science Department proudly welcome Dr. Julie Gerberding
to our campus to speak to our Grade VIII - XII students and their families on Monday, February 24, at 7 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room. Dr. Gerberding is the current President of Merck Vaccines and former Director of the Centers for Disease Control. She is responsible for Merck’s current portfolio of vaccines, planning for the introduction of vaccines from the company's pipeline, and accelerating efforts to broaden access to Merck’s vaccines around the world. Dr. Gerberding is passionate about global health and women in science. Her talk will be "Thug Bugs but Few Drugs" - looking at emerging viruses and antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and the fight against them.
Students will be preparing for her talk in science classes, and homework will include articles to read and questions for discussion for our students and parents. Please reach out to Christie Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org
