We are so pleased to welcome Dr. Julie L. Gerberding, a world-renowned infectious disease and vaccine expert, and the first woman to serve as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as this year’s keynote speaker.

When she was president of vaccines at Merck, she was instrumental in increasing access to the company’s vaccines to people around the world. Dr. Gerberding has profound expertise on infectious diseases, vaccines, public health and on the COVID-19 pandemic, so don’t miss the chance to tune in and hear her timely and valuable perspectives.
