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!
