CDC and IDCareLive to Host Zika Virus Chat for Medical Clinicians Tomorrow
Date:4/5/2016

Zika, already a problem in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, is expected to reach the mainland U.S. as seasonal temperatures climb and the mosquito responsible for transmission becomes active in states such as Florida, Louisiana, and Texas.

The CDC will host a complimentary, online session, “A CDC Update for Clinicians on Zika Virus Disease.” Joanne Cono MD, ScM, the Director of Office of Science Quality, Office of the Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will review the latest information for health care practitioners (HCPs) to implement in their practices. The session is scheduled for 1 pm – 2 pm EDT, April 6th.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify health effects related to Zika
  • Review the latest CDC Zika virus guidelines and recommendations for pregnant women, women of reproductive age, infants, and children
  • Understand clinical evaluation, diagnostic testing and treatment for Zika
  • Discuss opportunities with other clinicians and key community leaders to support prevention and control of Zika

The CDC describes the need for physicians and other health care practitioners to attend the session.

Zika virus is a mosquito-borne flavivirus transmitted primarily by Aedes species mosquitoes. Outbreaks of Zika have occurred in areas of Africa, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, and the Americas. Because the Aedes species mosquitoes that can spread Zika virus are found throughout the world, it is likely that outbreaks will occur in new countries. Most people infected with Zika virus will not know they have the disease because they will not have symptoms. Join us for this educational activity to learn the latest information about Zika and to gain a better understanding of the role of clinicians in early recognition and reporting of suspected cases.

The CDC will deliver the session jointly with IDCareLive.com, an online educational site dedicated to infectious diseases. In addition, IDCareLive.com will live-tweet the event from @IDCareLive with the hashtag #ZikaChat.

HCPs can sign up for the event at: IDCareLive.com
Media Inquiries: Christian Rubio, Senior Director of Marketing, PlatformQ Health, Needham, MA.
