Podcast: Life Before Childhood Vaccines

In "Polio Pioneers," the latest episode of Pitt Medcast, people who grew up in the shadow of a crippling disease—among them, schoolkids from the clinical trials of Jonas Salk’s killed-virus polio vaccine—talk about their experiences. Their accounts tell the story of how ordinary people helped win the struggle against one of the most crippling diseases in history.  
This Pitt Medcast was inspired by “Among My Souvenirs,” a story from the August 2005 issue of Pitt Med magazine.
