Day of Immunology 2014
The annual Day of Immunology (DoI) is just around the corner. Save the date: April 29, 2014! What are your plans for the DoI 2014? Please share your events with us (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can disseminate the information!
Although there will be no formal competition in 2014, initiatives organized for this year’s Day of Immunology (on or around April 29, 2014) will be eligible to compete for awards to be made at ECI 2015. Based on discussions with our member societies' representatives during ICI 2013 in Milan, and in view of the interest - both positive and negative – that the subject seems to be creating among the general public, the EFIS Board would like to invite Member Societies to consider organizing campaigns with a “Focus on Vaccinations”. Misconceptions about the safety of vaccines are arguably increasing, and an occasion like to the DoI offers an ideal opportunity to reach out to the public-at-large, particularly parents, in order to discuss and dismiss concerns. We hope you will thoughtfully choose to endorse efforts in this direction.
