About the Author
about the Author

Moshe Rhodes, PhD, is a professor of microbial genetics at the College of Charleston. He has been active in vaccine advocacy for the better part of a decade. As a cancer survivor and father of two young boys, his goal is to make the world a safer place for those not old enough or otherwise unable to be vaccinated.

The inspiration for Jenny's First Sleepover arose from the realization that as a xenial living in the United States, he had never witnessed firsthand a case of tetanus, diphtheria, polio, measles, etc. It was startlingly easy to overlook the severity of many of the vaccine preventable diseases, and the anti-vaccination movement had gained traction by clouding the country with misinformation. Jenny's First Sleepover is an attempt to portray the real world consequences of 10 vaccine preventable diseases in an amusing, darkly humorous, and easy to digest way.
