Cogan's Piece on Polio Vaccination Featured in Star Tribune

March 1, 2013

Charles Adams Cogan, associate dean of admissions, recently published an opinion piece in the Feb. 23 edition of the Star Tribune titled, "Polio fight needs final push in places like Nigeria." Cogan is one of the thousands of Rotary volunteers who have worked on the polio eradication campaign over the past 25 years.

In his article, Cogan urges for the continued support toward vaccination efforts and argues that the Muslim faith formally supports the vaccination of children. He concludes by saying, “In eradicating polio from Nigeria and Pakistan and Afghanistan, we’ll be protecting children into the future, but also building networks of cooperation toward a more peaceful, tolerant, and productive future.”
