On November 19th the United Nations Association Young Professionals - Southern New York State Division and the Young Professionals Health Network co-sponsored an event hosted by the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign at the Centre for Social Innovation in New York City. The Shot@Life campaign educates, connects, and empowers individuals to champion global vaccines as one of the most effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries.
We were joined by Alan Kissick and Liz Clapp from Shot@Life who share how young professionals and others can get involved in the campaign. They highlighted the ways individuals can help through actions such as sharing the work being done, meeting with representatives, and hosting fundraisers both online and in-person.
