Don't miss the story in your October Rotary magazine, an interview with Aidan O'Leary, the polio eradication director for the World Health Organization. His is a message of optimism with a sense of urgency and a realistic view of where we are today and the strategy forward. "The message is simple: A polio-free world is within reach. There is an opportunity, and now is the time to stay the course."
