You'll have a chance to meet some interesting people. And, you'll learn about the "Shot at Life" Campaign during the panel discussion portion of our program.
We think you'll like hearing from our panelists. Each of them is recognized as a "Shot at Life" Champion by the United Nations Foundation.
Here's a brief profile of Juliet Abdeljawad. In the next few days, we'll present a short bio for her co-presenter, Charles Swanson. To read about our third "Shot at Life" champion, Priya Desai, see this article.

Besides serving on the board of directors of our OKC chapter of UNA-USA, Juliet is a member of the National Women's Political Caucus, and she is an alumni to Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority.

Juliet's desire to alleviate poverty led to her master’s level thesis on female empowerment through social entrepreneurship and her publication on a micro-finance entity in Alexandria, Egypt.
Shot@Life educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. A national call to action for a global cause, the campaign rallies the American public, members of Congress, and civil society partners around the fact that together, we can save a child’s life every 20 seconds by expanding access to vaccines. By encouraging Americans to learn about, advocate for, and donate to vaccines, Shot@Life aims to decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give every child a shot at a healthy life.
