"Switching into the obesity world has made me even more aware of what a fantastic and helpful resource the IAC is for so many people. In obesity, there are many, many organizations with resources, which is good, except that it is also challenging to find the exact thing for different purposes, and it takes a long time to check out different websites to find exactly what one needs. In immunization, by contrast, all you have to do is go to www.immunize.org to find up-to-date resources that have been expertly developed and in which one can have complete confidence. You have sorted through everything for us, and developed the definitive, helpful chart, Ask the Experts, or other item. Also, your search engine is very user-friendly; I could always find what I needed very quickly on your website. So, great job, people. And if you get bored with immunization, we could really use you in obesity!!!"
