June 27: Richard Neiman, M.D., looks at “Salk vs. Sabin: The Conflict over the Eradication of Polio.” The eradication of polio is one of medicine’s greatest triumphs. However, the development of effective vaccines was marked by infighting, sniping and medical activities that would be banned today. This presentation will outline that fascinating story. Dr. Neiman is Emeritus Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and of Internal Medicine, Indiana University School of Medicine. He has had a longtime interest in the history of medicine.
