Tara Haelle will focus on vaccine hesitancy and vaccine refusal. This is a global health threat that lurks unnoticed until it erupts into unpredictable disease outbreaks that are difficult to contain. She explains what underlies the fear and hesitancy that many people have toward vaccines, why it's not as irrational as some believe, and what's necessary to address it.

Tara Haelle is a freelance science and multimedia journalist who writes regularly at Forbes, NPR, Scientific American, Slate, Medscape, and other U.S.-based publications. She co-wrote “The Informed Parent: A Science-Based Guide to the First Four Years” with science journalist Emily Willingham, and she blogs about science and parenting at Red Wine & Applesauce. She holds a master's in photojournalism from the University of Texas at Austin and has published her images in several publications.

James Vesper reviews the critical aspects of documents, records and record management. Documents like procedures, protocols, methods, and specifications provide instructions so people can perform tasks and make decisions safely, effectively, compliantly, and consistently. Records, such as batch manufacturing records, cleaning logs, and laboratory data sheets and notebooks provide evidence that actions were taken and decisions were (hopefully) made in keeping with procedures and GMP expectations. Reports, another type of documentation, provide specific information on a particular topic (like an investigation or one aspect of product development) in a formal, standardized way.

More than two billion people lack adequate access to essential medical products, often due to challenging terrain and gaps in infrastructure. Because of this, over 2.9 million children under age five die every year. And up to 150,000 pregnancy-related deaths could be avoided each year if mothers had reliable access to safe blood.

Through a partnership with the Government of Rwanda, Zipline will deliver all blood products for twenty hospitals and health centers starting this summer, improving access to healthcare for millions of Rwandans.
