Please visit our Meet the Board section of our coalition website to review bios of this amazing group.
Although we could not invite all nominees to join us at this time, we strongly encourage everyone to remain engaged in SCIC's initiatives, such as the SCIC Speakers' Bureau, SC Adolescent Immunization Task Force, SC Adult Immunization Workgroup, and/or the SC Vaccine Equity Workgroup. Each of these initiatives offers leadership, resource coordination, and partnership opportunities.
Lastly, a special thank you to the 2021 Board of Directors who led this coalition through its post-pandemic foundational rebuilding. Your contributions are invaluable!
