“World Polio Day: Making History,” will take place on World Polio Day- This Thursday, 24 October 2013—at 6:30pm and will be streamed live at endpolionow.org.

This event, held in conjunction with Northwestern University’s Center for Global Health, will deliver a global status update on the fight to end polio- poised to be only the second human disease ever eradicated- and its broader implications for global health.

I encourage you to attend the “World Polio Day: Making History” event . Possibly make it a club meeting. It would also be a great opportunity to invite friends and family to watch the livestream event.

We promised the children of the world that we would eradicate polio, and Rotarians keep their word. We are this close, and getting closer every day. Thanks to you, we will End Polio Now.

In honor of World Polio Day on the 24th you can watch the whole show Thursday night on the Smithsonian Channel.

It was 1952, and polio had reached outbreak levels in America. There was no known cause, no cure, and no help in sight for parents desperate to protect their children. Our nation's hope was placed in a 33-year-old scientist, working from a basement lab in Pittsburgh. His name was Jonas Salk, and in just a few years, he would bring infantile paralysis to its knees and change the course of medical history. Travel back to a world gripped in fear and see how Dr. Salk, with his dedicated staff, a young charity, and a faithful nation, came together to conquer polio.
