SCRUB RUN 5K!
On Sunday, May 7, 2017, join us for our Second Annual Scrub Run!
Film Screening & discussion ”Hilleman; A Perilous Quest to Save the World’s Children”
This documentary tells the inspiring story of Dr. Maurice Hilleman, a man with a singular, unwavering focus; to eliminate the diseases of children. From his poverty-stricken youth on the plains of Montana, he went on to prevent pandemic flu, develop the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, and invent the first-ever vaccine against human cancer. Now through exclusive interviews with Dr. Hilleman and his peers, rare archival footage, and 3-D animation, this film puts a human face to vaccine science, revealing the character that drove this bold, complex, and heroic man. The film maker will be in attendance. Stay for an informal discussion after the film.
