Health providers met at Chehaw Park for the annual, "Building Bridges" seminar today, learning the most up-to-date information on immunizations.

Different speakers covered various topics and organizers wanted to give them a chance to get educated and learn how to best share that information with their patients.

"This is a group that comes together to educate providers on how to talk to those parents so those parents get the correct information about immunizations and their children, and they can make educated decisions for their children," said Associate Professor of Pediatrics, David Freeman.

The event brought out multiple agencies such as the Center for Disease Control and National Center for Immunization.
