Jonas Salk Around The World

We encourage you to help us achieve our goal of bringing Jonas Salk and his scientific and philosophical spirit to as many places as possible. Together we will take him around the world, carry on his legacy, and remind people of a role model who prioritized people’s well-being over profit.

Similar to the extremely successful Flat Stanley project 25 years ago, we’ve created an eye-catching and charming design of Jonas Salk that you can print out, take a photo with in front of your favorite places, and then share on social media. Some of the photos created so far are shown in the gallery below.
