Why you should listen

Ethan Lindenberger is an 18-year-old High school student at Norwalk High School in Norwalk Ohio. He is by all accounts a normal teenager: he serves at his local church, has a part-time job, works an internship and takes part in extracurricular activities. In early February of 2019, Lindenberger began to find media attention after pursuing vaccines against the approval of his mother. This became a national story and led him to testify to the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee about his experiences. Since then, Lindenberger has continued to take part in advocating for science. He believes that everyone has a role to play in ending misinformation, and he has spoken to the importance of scientific truth while maintaining respect for those that have fallen victim to misinformation.
