SP Library: Doors Open Pittsburgh - "Jonas Salk Ends Paralyzing Summers"

From South Park Township
When Mon, Apr 12, 2021 from 7:30pm to 8:15pm

Everyone who is old enough remembers where they were on April 12, 1955 when the Polio Vaccine was heralded. Horns honked, church bells rang, people celebrated in the streets. It was official: The Salk Vaccine is Safe and Works! Jonas Salk was, and is, a popular hero, but some in the scientific community were not so happy with his discovery. This is the story of Salk's journey to discovery, the setbacks, the grit, the naysayers, and the triumph of a national hero. This virtual program is presented by Doors Open Pittsburgh and is hosted by Dr. Pam Gianna.
