Students Attend Chris Whitty Talk at Dr Jenner's House

Fifteen students went to a talk by Professor Chris Whitty in Berkeley to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the death of Edward Jenner (17 May 1749 - 26 January 1823).

Edward Jenner was an English physician and scientist who was the pioneer of smallpox vaccine, the world's first vaccine. The talk took place in the Church where Edward Jenner is buried. Students were able to ask Professor Whitty questions, and these ranged from asking how Professor Whitty became the Chief Medical Officer for England, to the potential impact of vaping on adolescents.
