1. If such a town hall were held in your community would you attend? Why or why not?
Yes because I enjoy learning more about health topics, especially relating to my children. Being able to ask questions in person and get answers right away is nice.
2. Who would you want to hear from? Does it matter if the physician is also a parent? should there be a panel and should it include parent(s) who are not providers?
I would prefer that the physicians be parents because then they can speak from their own personal experiences when having to make decisions for their own children, and not just be coming from the doctor side of things. I think it should include parents because if other parents can ask them why they chose certain things, they are getting the doctor and "real parent" (so to speak) opinions. Yes to a panel and not just one person...more opinions and more ways to answer questions. I don't think I would trust ONE doctor answering everything.
3. What specific questions would you like to see answered?
Why is the vaccine schedule set up like it is? What is the reason for having so many vaccines at one time? Are each of the vaccines TRULY necessary and are they necessary at the time they are being given?
4. Should this be held “live” only or with ability to handle simultaneous tweets?
I don't know.
5. What role should the media play, if any?
Well, obviously advertising the event, possibly reporting on it so that people who did not attend can read about it, and that will increase the audience possibly for the next time.
