My name is Lea Seeber and I am a pediatric resident at DRK Kliniken in Berlin. At the moment I am doing a rotation at the neuropediatric department, where we are trying to help children with epilepsy, developmental delay, and neuromuscular disease. We frequently advise parents with questions about the special vaccination indications for their children. I am always happy when I can allay concerns with a thorough consultation.
I am currently working on my doctoral thesis on pediatric infectious diseases and vaccines. My dissertation focuses on communicating vaccine safety and vaccine benefit risk. I am interested in the extent to which modern digital media in combination with conventional documents (such as vaccination cards) can help to improve the understanding of the benefits of immunization and the need to vaccinate.
In my spare time, I enjoy discussing literature in several reading groups and learning German Sign Language.
