You don’t have to buy a plane ticket to participate in this year’s World Polio Day festivities at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s facility in downtown Seattle, Washington, USA. You can watch the event live next Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at 2:30 PM Seattle time (5:30 PM in Cincinnati) for an update on our global campaign to eradicate polio. A recording of the livestream will be available later.
Sue Desomond-Hellman, the Gates Foundation’s chief executive, will discuss this year’s progress with attendees, including Rotary members, Gates Foundation staff, and supporters, as well as the audience watching worldwide via livestream. Only 11 new cases of wild poliovirus have been reported so far in 2017, all in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Click HERE to view the livestream event on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.
