Our guests today are Dr. Len Friedland, VP, director of Scientific Affairs and Public Health, Vaccines, North America at GSK. Dr. Leonard Friedland, Vice President, Director Scientific Affairs and Public Health, GSK Vaccines, is a pediatrician and research scientist who is passionate about vaccines. He spends his days helping people understand the science of vaccines and complex ideas about how vaccines help to improve public health and the lives of patients.
Joining Dr. Friedland is Tiffany Williams, GSK spokesperson and meningitis advocates advocate. In 2011, while attending Texas A&M University, Tiffany’s younger brother Nicolis “Nico” Williams suffered what he thought was a bad headache after a night out with friends. After a visit to the clinic, he went to sleep off his flu-like symptoms. Hours later, he was admitted to the emergency room and diagnosed with meningitis B, which ultimately cost him his life. Shortly after Nico passed away, Tiffany’s family began working with the J.A.M.I.E. Group, founded by meningitis survivor Jamie Schanbaum and her family, to change the law in the state of Texas. On May 27, 2011, the 82nd Texas Legislature passed the Jamie Schanbaum and Nicolis Williams Act. making Texas the first state in the country to require all first-time college students be vaccinated against bacterial meningitis. Tiffany and her family founded a non-profit, The NICO Williams Foundation (Neglecting Immunizations Compromising Opportunity) in 2012, which works to educate about the disease and vaccinations for meningococcal disease, with a current focus on meningitis B. Tiffany is now working as a paid GSK spokesperson, sharing her brother’s story, to educate parents and young adults about the dangers of meningitis and the types of vaccines available to help prevent it.
