It's World Polio Day! The day when we reflect on the progress we have made against this horrible disease and reset our focus to eradicate it for good. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Global Polio Initiative which is an international effort to eradicate the disease. Rotary plays a major role with the initiative.
Closer to home the Resort Municipality of Whistler has declared October 24th as World Polio Day and we thank the Mayor and Council for recognizing this important day.  A copy of the proclamation is on the left  (Please click image to read the proclamation).
Rotary will feature a Livestream event from the  College of Physicians in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that begins at 6:30PM Philadelphia time or 3:30PM Pacific time. The livestream will feature global health experts and celebrities sharing our progress on the road to polio eradication. A recording of the livestream will be made available on after the event.
