Abstract: Currently in the United States, there is an emerging trend of parents to refuse vaccinating children due to misinformation and lack of trust in the healthcare system. Evidence-based educational information was presented to expectant mothers at an area clinic. A post-survey assessed the participant's knowledge of vaccines. The audience gained accurate knowledge about vaccines, and provided feedback on the quality of the education initiative (Part 4). Part 4 and Part 5 will be completed after presenting our education session to the participants.
