A Shot in the Arm

Performing Arts & Entertainment

May 20 | 7:15 pm - 9:30 pm  

Conversation with Michael D. Miller, MD, an independent health care communications, policy, and advocacy expert with significant vaccine and misinformation experience, to will follow the film. Presented by Berkshire Health Systems. Before anyone had heard of COVID-19, filmmaker Scott Hamilton Kennedy (The Garden) began investigating the global measles epidemic. Filming with top public health officials — including Tony Fauci — as well as rare interviews with anti-vaccine activists who were persuading parents by the millions to refuse vaccines for their children. Then COVID-19 happened. Acting quickly, Kennedy shifted his directorial eye to this once-in-a-century tragedy. Both skeptical and hopeful, SHOT IN THE ARM explores vaccine hesitancy historically and in the context of our modern pandemic. Can we replace cynicism with healthy curiosity and bridge the political divides that make us sick? Michael D. Miller, MD is a healthcare communications, policy, and advocacy expert consultant with more than 30 years of experience helping to improve health care access and affordability, and advance innovations. He has worked on vaccine issues for many years, and during the COVID-19 pandemic he served on the board of the non-profit Why We Vax and continues to convene their Scientific Advisory Board, and in April he made a presentation at the World Vaccine Congress about how people can have productive conversations with their misinformed friends, family and co- workers.
