NY Times editorial

The New York Times published an editorial by Dr. Offit on February 10, 2015. Titled “What Would Jesus Do About Measles?,” the editorial highlighted the measles outbreak in Philadelphia in the early 1990s that centered on two churches that did not believe in vaccinations. This incident was used as the basis for a broader discussion about religious exemptions. Parental decisions about children’s health based on religious beliefs is the topic of Dr. Offit’s next book, Bad Faith: When Religious Belief Undermines Modern Medicine (Basic Books, 2015). The bok is scheduled for release in early March.
