Zika: What We Know and What We're Doing about It

Apr 4, 2017
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Description

Join this University Community Conversation (UC²) event to learn the latest on the Zika virus.

The Aedes mosquito-borne virus Zika broke into headlines last year when this relatively mild disease was linked to an increased likelihood of birth defects such as microcephaly. Since this discovery, Zika has spread throughout the Americas, reaching the United States. What is Zika? What are the risks and treatment? How has research on the virus progressed? Our panel will discuss these issues and will take your questions. Join the conversation!

Deborah McMahan, M.D., health commissioner, Fort Wayne-Allen County Dept. of Health

Elliott Blumenthal, Ph.D. , associate professor of biology

James E. Cameron, M.D., FAAP, medical director, Lutheran Children's Hospital NICU and medical staff president of Lutheran Hospital

Robyn Schmucker, M.D., Pediatric Infectious Diseases, Parkview Hospital

Melissa Rice, D.O., Neonatology, Parkview Hospital

Moderator: Koichiro Otani, Ph.D., professor of public policy, Health Services Administration Program

Sponsored by the Institute for Research, Scholarship, and Creative Endeavors
