Part I is a pre-requite of Part II to this workshop.
This workshop is an interactive seminar that teaches the essential tools and skills needed to develop and master the art of negotiation. This course will not only focus on developing the skill of negotiating in work place, but will also teach how they can be practiced and utilized in everyday life. After attending this workshop postdocs will be able to take the negotiating skills learned and put them to immediate use - Be it negotiating a job offer, with vendors, or buying a car, postdocs will work together to develop the skills needed to negotiate successfully.
This two part course consists of one full day workshop where attendees will learn and hone the skills needed to negotiate. This is followed three weeks later by a half day workshop where attendees will return to discuss and compare how they were able to use the skills they had learned, as well as receive some final advice on how to improve negotiating skills.
Unlike vaccines of the past, which focused on combating diseases that affect large populations, many vaccines under development today are for devastating diseases with high impact but low incidence or societal burden. Now the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is considering using cost-effectiveness as a major criterion in the vaccine scheduling process. Since the full benefit of vaccines is only realized once enough people are vaccinated to prevent further propagation of diseases, traditional approaches to measuring cost-effectiveness do not apply well to vaccines, especially those targeted to niche but severe diseases. To ensure public health is protected and medical innovation continues, the CDC's process for recommending childhood vaccines needs to evolve. Panelists will comment on the CDC's future with vaccines, drawing from experiences in public health, policy, and industry.
Panelists will include Center for Bioethics' (Center for Vaccine Ethics and Policy) own, David Curry. Other panelists will go a follows:
ADEL MAHMOUD, M.D., Princeton University
LESLIE NORWALK, Former Acting Administrator, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
MARK PAULY, Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
WILLIAM SCHAFFNER, M.D., National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
