A Q&A with Dr. John Modlin about Enteroviruses Dr. John Modlin, an international expert in childhood infectious diseases, is the chair the Department of Pediatrics at DHMC and a professor of pediatrics (infectious disease) and of medicine at DMS. He is the former chair of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices; has served on many other influential national committees and advisory groups; and has authored more than 150 papers on the development and prevention of human enterovirus infections, poliovirus immunization, public policy on immunizations, and related topics. His studies and advocacy on the potential risks of polio vaccination contributed to a major change in U.S. poliovirus immunization policy in the mid-1990s—to the use of a killed rather than a live vaccine. This is a web extra to an article that appeared in the Summer 2007 issue of Dartmouth Medicine Magazine. To read the article, go to: http://dartmed.dartmouth.edu/summer07/html/vs_virus.php
