Health Center at Auraria – Steve Monaco, director of the Health Center at Auraria, asked that I educate our campus community about vaccine-related scams to avoid.

The Academic Times – Consistently ranked as one of the leading causes of death around the world, malaria doesn’t have an effective vaccine yet.

SELF – This week, new research provides a stark reminder that COVID-19 and the gym don't mix particularly well.
Indoor group fitness classes are actually a pretty effective way to transmit the coronavirus, according to two new studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
