Do you know what a vaccinologist is? How about a vaccinologist and social media educator rolled into one? 

In this episode, we get to know Dr. Melvin Sanicas, MD, TOYM awardee for 2021, now based in Zurich, Switzerland. A global health thought leader with 55k followers on social media is also a TED educator who teaches people not just about the importance of vaccines but, more importantly, to avoid panicking with what they see on the news. As challenging as his scientific work is, his best moments are getting comments saying that someone converted into taking the vaccine because of what he said. 

The pursuit of studying science in our country is quite expensive and limited. That is why Dr. Sanicas also encourages youth to take the same path as he did - study abroad since Covid-19 won’t be the last pandemic for sure. Filipinos are highly intelligent and talented, but opportunities seem scarce because we do not know about them. So tune in to this episode to understand how Dr. Sanicas was able to study abroad. 

We are now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with the Covid-19 pandemic, thanks to scientists like Dr. Sanicas. May he inspire the youth to serve the country and the world and become better through the pursuit of scientific knowledge.
