Vaccine hesitancy part 2: Effective strategies for a human-centered health campaign
By Tiffany Vora
Dr. Tiffany Vora continues her insights on vaccine hesitancy by laying out a human-centered health campaign approach that multiple sectors, from public health to social media companies, can consider.
Dr. Tiffany Vora is a nonresident senior fellow with the Atlantic Council’s GeoTech Center. She is an educator, writer, research scientist, and entrepreneur. After earning undergraduate degrees in Biology and Chemistry at New York University, Vora worked on cutting-edge drug-discovery technologies at Bristol-Myers Squibb. Her PhD research in the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University brought her into the emerging fields of genomics, systems biology, computational biology, and astrobiology. With the Mars Society, Vora designed and supported biology-and health-related research in Mars simulations in extreme environments; she continues to pursue that interest with Space Humanity Lab and other groups. Her fascination with the cultural and ethical shifts that accompany new technologies and new ways of thinking led her to the American University of Cairo as a visiting assistant professor. After later serving as an instructor in the Department of Bioengineering at Stanford University, Vora joined Singularity University, first as full-time faculty and then as the faculty director. She is currently faculty and vice chair of medicine and digital biology at Singularity University. She is also the founder of a consulting company focused on science communication and the cofounder of an organization that fosters thought leadership with a global impact.
Overall, Vora is passionate about asking the hard questions, encouraging others to ask and answer those questions, and translating the leading edge of science and medicine into actionable insights for individuals, companies, and society.
