Holocaust Museum Houston will host physician-scientist Dr. Peter Hotez for a public lecture in the Museum’s Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater and online via Zoom. Known for keeping Houston and the nation up to date on the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccine, Dr. Hotez is an expert in neglected tropical diseases and vaccine development.

Dr. Hotez will tell a personal story of his decades countering anti-vaccine activism, which now includes attacks from extremist groups, many with antisemitism and antisemitic leanings at their core. He will explain his work in the greater context of the Jewish concept of Tikkun Olam first taught to him by his cousin and Holocaust survivor, Rabbi Phil Lazowski.

Dr. Hotez will also discuss the 21st Century successes in global vaccines and vaccinations, together with his work to develop new vaccines for poverty-related neglected diseases, as well as new COVID-19 vaccines for global health. These include Corbevax administered to more than 80 million people in India, and Indovac, the first Halal vaccine for Indonesia and Muslim-majority nations.

This event is open to the public, but advance registration is required.
