Skeptic Wire would like to congratulate friend of the podcast Elyse Anders. Elyse is president of the Women Thinking Free Foundation (WTFF) which has announced that they are partnering with the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF) in a new effort to understand and combat the media misinformation on vaccination.
Announced Monday April 25th, the beginning of National Infant Immunization Week , the two organizations are going to survey hundreds (hopefully thousands?) of parents with young children in order to get a handle on what people think, what they hear, and where they get their information from. They'll freely share the data with public health advocates so that we can figure out how to effectively get the message across that immunizations save lives and are safe.
Way to go Elyse! Read the official announcement here.
