The Immunization Partnership is preparing for its 14th annual luncheon, “Courage in Action.” The event, benefiting programs that aim to increase immunization rates in the community, will be held at River Oaks Country Club on Thursday, April 20, at 11:30 a.m., chaired by Susan Feigin Harris and Rosie Valadez-McStay. Guests will hear from keynote speaker Marie Brenner, author of The Desperate Hours: One Hospital’s Fight to Save a City on the Pandemic Front Lines, who will share the challenges that one of our nation’s preeminent hospitals faced during the pandemic. The event honors public-health leaders, advocates, and providers, including Dr. Marc L. Boom, president and chief executive officer, Houston Methodist Hospital, Dr. Peter J. Hotez, and Dr. Maria Elena Bottazzi, co-directors of the Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, and dean and associate dean of National School of Tropical Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, and Legacy Community Health. Pictured at the 2022 luncheon are Kay Tittle, The Immunization Partnership executive director Terri Burke, and Catherine Mitchell. See
