Beginning April 27th, PBS's Frontline explores the controversy surrounding childhood vaccines and autism and ADHD in "The Vaccine War."

The documentary can be viewed on air or online and the program's website offers commentary from Dr. Eileen Costello, who was the featured speaker at last fall's Dearborn Academy Luncheon. Dr. Costello is a pediatrician in Boston and co-author of Quirky Kids: Understanding and Helping Your Child Who Doesn't Fit In. She recently completed an autism fellowship at Boston Medical Center.
