ZIKA IN THE U.S., PUERTO RICO AND BEYOND: Risks and Response 
Presented in Collaboration with Reuters

Live Webcast: Thursday, September 29, 2016

Special Time: 1:00PM-2:00PM ET

With more than 23,000 cases of Zika in the continental U.S. and U.S. territories — including hard-hit Puerto Rico — this Forum will continue a conversation begun in March 2016 to discuss the risks and response to the spreading Zika virus. The focus will be on the U.S. and Caribbean, as well as other regions experiencing increases in cases. Public health experts will examine our deepening understanding of how the virus works and how its spread may be controlled; where potential Congressional funding might be best spent (a vote is expected soon); how vaccines might potentially help; and how public health messaging around the virus may impact at-risk groups, particularly pregnant women.
