For the past 25 years, Jeff Widmer has written nationally and internationally for magazines such as Advertising Age, Philadelphia and National Geographic World. In the early 1990s, his nationally syndicated column on music and spoken-word audio appeared in newspapers across the country.From the Author:
Like many people, I used to take vaccines for granted. I guess you do if you're healthy. But at the turn of the century, the protection offered by this kind of preventive medicine was by no means guaranteed, and a public backlash ensued. Researching these stories gave me a much deeper appreciation of the struggles of these pioneers, and the importance of public policy in this area. While manufacturers today receive much of the credit for advances in the field, I find the most compelling stories are those of the people who risked their finances and reputations so others could lead healthier lives.
