Dr Ed Lewin, Research Professor, Milken Institute For Public Health, Georgetown University School Of Medicine

Dr. Lewin is a graduate of Princeton University and NYU School of Medicine. He did his internship at Yale in internal medicine, his training in pediatrics at Duke and infectious diseases at Harvard. 
He spent 2 years in the Laboratory Branch in respiratory virology at the CDC. His academic career has taken him to the University of Rochester where he was head of the pediatric infectious disease unit and the University of Michigan. He is presently a Research Professor at the Milkin Institute of George Washington University. His present area of interest is to administer a study of a video-based curriculum for middle school students in vaccine science in an attempt to improve vaccine acceptance across the lifespan. He, and his distinguished Advisory Board for the Vaccine Education Project, believe it is more fruitful to access young minds 
than to try to change older ones.
