Much gratitude to Dr. Lane (who passed away last week) for his efforts in leading the eradication of smallpox. He pioneered vaccine 💉 programs across the globe 🌎 and was a tireless advocate for inclusion. I remember reading about his work and that of so many others back in medical school. This was truly a different kind of CDC back then, but the collective efforts of Dr. Lane & his many colleagues across so many nations showed that humanity can and will defeat the scourge of deadly pathogens 🦠. So many great scientists, doctors, epidemiologists, and public health officials continue to look at the bigger picture and not just themselves. Eliminating smallpox was a huge achievement for mankind. You can read more about Dr. Lane here:

The untimely death of #ChadwickBoseman has spurred a call to revisit colorectal (or colon) cancer awareness and screening. In today’s edition of Friday Morning Rounds, I focus on the fact that Black Americans are disproportionately affected by this disease.
