Those resistant to receiving vaccines (“Anti-vaxxers”) are commonly portrayed as dismissing science, discounting expertise, and being “at war” with science. Unfortunately, this oppositional rhetoric leads to disagreements and policies that only further distrust of the health system. In 2019 the World Health Organization labeled vaccine hesitancy one of the top ten global health risks. In her talk, Maya Goldenberg will discuss the ongoing crisis of trust and how it can be repaired. Goldenberg is an Associated Professor of Philosophy at the University of Guelph. Her research centers on the philosophy of science and medicine, with interest in the connection between science and values.
