California Immunization Coalition's (CIC) Executive Director, Catherine Flores was honored to attend Mrs. Carter's tribute service in Atlanta on November 27th, on behalf of the Board of Directors of Vaccinate Your Family (VYF) and the Board of CIC.
Along with VYF Executive Director, Amy Pisani and several current and past Board members, we were pleased to join the Carter family and numerous colleagues and volunteers who gathered to celebrate the life of Rosalynn Carter.
As many of you know, Mrs. Carter was active in numerous humanitarian and educational efforts, in addition to being a much beloved wife, mother and grandmother. We enjoyed meeting representatives from Habitat for Humanity, the Carter Center for Peace, the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers, individuals from academia, the government, and nonprofits who worked with her on mental health advocacy programs, voter rights, and learned more about the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail (a project to save the Monarch butterflies), and many more.
We were proud to share our experiences in working with Mrs. Carter in her role as Co-Founder of Every Child By Two (now VYF) and her impact on vaccination laws and immunization programs; work that has saved millions of lives throughout the world.
