NY Event Feb 23 –Zika outbreak, what next?

Scroll down to content

With the mosquito-borne zika virus on the rise in Latin America and with thousands of babies apparently already brain-damaged, how can global health authorities possibly respond? What does the science say and where are the gaps in our knowledge? And with some countries already simply recommending women avoid pregnancy, what kind of international and local health response would prove appropriate?

Panelists will include

  • Dr. Taraneh Shirazian, NYU Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology
  • Dr. David Abramson, NYU Clinical Associate Professor and Director of the Program on Population Recovery and Resiliency 
  • Dr. Dana Mazo, Associate Hospital Epidemiologist at Mount Sinai Beth Israel and Assistant Professor of Infectious Diseases at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Helen Coster, senior editor at Thomson Reuters, will be moderating the discussion. This event is held in conjunction with Women in International Security.
