Presenting Sponsor GSK’s Panel of Experts Talks About Vaccines Across the Lifespan

dad2summit2019 Dad 2.0 Summit, Announcements, Sponsor

We’re excited to announce that GSK, one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies that wants people to do more, feel better, and live longer, is returning as a Presenting Sponsor! And they’re coming to San Antonio once again to convene a very important panel discussion about vaccines on Friday, from 11:00am to 11:45pm.

Whether you’re the father of a newborn or the son of aging parents, or both, you spend a lot of time researching vaccinations. GSK’s panel of experts is here to include dads in very important conversations about how vaccines protect our kids, our parents, and ourselves, as well as how we can remain informed healthcare consumers:

  • Less than 15% of teens have received a vaccine that helps protect them against Meningitis B—an uncommon, but potentially deadly disease.
  • The 2017-2018 flu season set the record for the highest number of flu-related deaths in children since the 2004-2005 flu season. 185 flu-related pediatric deaths were reported to the CDC – 80% occurring in children who were not vaccinated against the flu that season.

We will be joined by Pediatrician and Vice President, Director Scientific Affairs & Public Health, GSK Vaccines, Dr. Leonard Friedland, a doctor and a dad who can help you make sense of the vaccines for your family.

Join us to get the information you need to educate both your family and your audience about vaccination across the lifespan and to meet dads with firsthand knowledge of the power of vaccines.

GSK takes a very educational approach to working with influencers, and this session is another chance to meet the GSK team, and talk about how you and your community can stay informed about vaccines.
