Paul Brochu
Rotary PolioPlus
 
Paul Brochu is Rotary District 7850's PolioPlus Advocate. His goal is to help keep Rotary’s commitment to the eradication of polio in the public eye, to provide any assistance that I can to District 7850 clubs as they help with Rotary’s polio eradication effort, and to help raise funds for Rotary’s End Polio campaign.
 
He's a retired Navy Medical Service Corps Officer and spent the last 23 years of his 30-year Navy career focused on public health.  In 2019, Paul was fortunate enough to be able to take part in a Rotary National Immunization Day trip to India to see first-hand the impact Rotary continues to have in the worldwide effort to eradicate polio. 
Rotary International and its partners are incredibly close to realizing the goal of eradicating polio from the face of the earth.  Paul will provide an update on the status of polio eradication, including ongoing work in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and how Rotarians can continue to assist in these efforts.
