Videotaping began this week on the polio educational video being created as a joint effort by the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club, CASDA, District 7190, and the UAbany School of Public Heath.
The aim is to have the video, which is being underwritten by CASDA, completed in time for a debut showing at the District Conference in Lake George in May.
It is expected that the final product will be available in three different lengths to accommodate different needs.
District Governor John Mucha is narrating the video, which includes Jim Leyhane interviewing Dr. Martha Lepow, an early pioneer in polio research and the Director of Excellence In Pediatric and Adolescent Care at Albany Medical Center. In addition to CASDA providing the technical crew at no cost to the club, members of SRC, the District and the School of Public Heath are volunteering their time.
