A USF public health researcher recently took on the mission of trying to increase immunizations among students at an Indiana high school with a high poverty level. When she completed her three stage plan, the immunization rate had jumped from 66 percent to almost 100 percent. We’ll find out what she did – and how other schools can learn from it – on the next University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
