At the request of a Duke Medical School professor, the Policy Bridge provided guidance to Duke Vaccine Institute leaders about strategies for incorporating policy engagement into their work and for communicating policy-relevant findings to a range of stakeholders.

The Bridge program helped to bring together faculty who were interested in thinking through the area of vaccine policy and vaccine education, as a connection to both the Duke Human Vaccine Institute and the Department of Pediatrics at the School of Medicine.
