Watch the videos ahead of time and then join us for a live online Q and A with our two speakers.  Dallan Flake, Associate Professor of Law speaks about ban-the-box laws which delay an employer’s inquiry into an applicant’s criminal record until later in the hiring process. In this chat, he examines the criticisms and successes of ban-the-box laws and discusses his own experiment to test the criticism that they may harm racial minorities.  Michael Rush, Director of ONU Healthwise & Pharmacy Residency Programs and Assistant Clinical Professor of Pharmacy Practice, in his chat examines vaccine hesitancy by highlighting 3 milestone vaccines (smallpox, rabies, and polio) and the ways in which society reacted to the controversial nature of the introduction of these vaccines to the public.  Find both chats here:
