Pediatric Nurse Practitioners Join Campaign to Advocate for Global Vaccines

Shot@Life has been so fortunate to recently develop a partnership with the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) and we are truly excited about the partnership in 2015 and beyond! I had the opportunity to attend NAPNAP’s annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia, March 15-18 and was blown away by their members’ enthusiasm for Shot@Life’s mission.  Shot@Life builds on the UN Foundation’s 14-year history of supporting the work of the United Nations by educating, connecting and empowering individuals like you to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries.   Nurse practitioners truly know the value of vaccines and the difference they can make in a child’s life.

If you are a NAPNAP member who attended the conference, I hope that you had a chance to stop by our booth to play Shot@Life Trivia or to simply learn about the Shot@Life Campaign and our partnership with NAPNAP!


Shot@Life team members talk to pediatric nurse practitioners at the 37th National Conference on Pediatric Health Care in Atlanta.

Whether it was attending one of the ground breaking sessions on pediatric health, or learning about all the remarkable work taking place across the country, I was inspired by every NAPNAP member I met.

You don’t have to be a NAPNAP member to get more involved in the Shot@Life movement to help end unnecessary childhood deaths from vaccine-preventable diseases! If you are passionate about global immunization programs, I’d encourage you to become a champion for our cause. This spring, we are organizing two upcoming Champion Trainings in April! Register now!

Champion Training #1: April 16th from 3pm-4pm EST

Champion Training #2: April 28th from 8:30pm – 9:30pm EST

In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at to learn more about the partnership, Shot@Life, and the new and exciting partnership!

I hope you’ll join us in standing up for childhood. Together, we can give children everywhere a shot at a healthy life.
