Anatomy of a Public Health Crisis: Clark County’s Measles Outbreak

Join us for a panel discussion on Clark County’s recent measles outbreak. The panel features four experts in their respective fields of health care, public health, journalism as well as the community. They will share their perspectives on the months-long measles outbreak that incited a renewed conversation around vaccinations, and discuss the measles outbreak as it unfolded across our community and the lessons learned. Refreshments available post-event. Free and open to the public.
