Jordan's Syrian Refugees - As world leaders gather in Geneva to discuss possible solutions to the Syrian crisis, one key factor is the huge number of refugees. Since March 2011, almost two and a half million Syrians have fled the country in what the United Nations has called "the greatest humanitarian catastrophe of modern times." Many of the refugees--perhaps half of them---have ended up in neighboring Jordan. Managing Editor Kim Lawton traveled to Jordan to report on the plight of the Syrian refugees and how faith-based groups are trying to help. Vaccination Scare - Measles and whooping cough, contagious diseases once thought eradicated, are coming back in epidemic numbers nationally. Dr. John Snyder, a pediatrician in Amherst, Mass says the rising number of cases are due to parents delaying or forbidding their children's vaccinations. "These are diseases that frequently hospitalized, disfigured, permanently damaged or killed children on a regular basis," said Dr. Snyder. Deborah Potter reports on this growing public health problem and its ethical and religious implications.
