Scientific Technologies begins Immunization Ambassador program
The program enables community leaders to engage in a campaign that will increase the awareness of immunizations. By doing this, STC creates an outlet for ambassadors from a variety of industries to share their public health experiences about why vaccinations are important.
“The world is full of immunization believers,” STC CEO Mike Popovich said. “The world is full of people that have lived healthy lives because of immunizations. We wanted to harness this energy so others less concerned or unaware could benefit. We came up with the idea of an Immunization Ambassador. Think about what an ambassador does. They promote, they collaborate, they stay involved.
"Like teachers they work for the good of others. Ambassadors make a difference in people’s lives. It was clear to us the world was full of Immunization Ambassadors. Our goal became linking this community together in a social network so the energy of one would soon become the energy of hundreds. We knew someone out there would benefit as these ambassadors told their story.”
Erika Edminston said she jumped at the chance to serve as Immunization Ambassador.
“What a fun and engaging way to celebrate healthy kids and healthy families," she said. "Immunizations are so critical. As a mom, I can’t imagine anything worse than losing a child, let alone losing a child to a preventable disease.”
