Join librarian Cindy Haiken to watch and discuss a popular TED talk on Zoom. Once registered, you will receive your Zoom invitation by email on the morning of the event. In October, we will watch and discuss Heidi Larson's "Rumors, Trust and Vaccines."
Why do people distrust vaccines? Anthropologist Heidi Larson explores how medical rumors originate, spread and fuel resistance to vaccines worldwide. While vaccines cannot escape the "political and social turbulence" that surrounds them, she says, the first step to stopping the spread of disease is to talk to people, listen and build trust.
