Ethan Lindenberger    

Vaccine Advocate; TED Speaker

Ethan Lindenberger is recent high school graduate from 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.
