Part 2 - Vaccine Mandates and Liberty: Where Do We Find Scholarly Research?
Finding credible sources of information and obtaining data can be a challenge, especially when it comes to understanding mandatory vaccination policies in the context of preserving individual liberties. At this hybrid event, three panelists will share and discuss a list of resources that you can use to become better informed on this topic.
Panelists include Mike Van Beek, Director of Research at the Mackinac Center, Dr. Dale Matcheck, chair of economics at Northwood University, and Andrew Reder, a freshman at Northwood University who is active in several student initiatives for free enterprise policy. Join us from 6:00-8:00 pm EST at the Griswold Center on Northwood University’s campus or stream the discussion online. Sponsored by the Charles M. Bauervic Foundation and presented in conjunction with Northwood University, this is a must-attend event for students participating in the 2021-22 Bauervic Essay Competition at the college or high school level, and all are welcome.
