Rotary District 5150 sponsored a Polio Summit on October 3, 2020. Our Club's past president Laine Hendricks served as emcee to this Summit. The Summit was a wonderful event with world class Polio experts who provided us with important updates about our fight against Polio.
 
Because of the efforts of Rotary and its partners, nearly 19 million people who would otherwise have been paralyzed are walking, and more than 1.5 million people are alive who would otherwise have died. The infrastructure we helped build to end polio is also being used to treat and prevent other diseases (including COVID-19) and create lasting impact in other areas of public health. 
 
If you were unable to attend, here is a recording of the Summit.
