Webinar: From Ebola to Zika - What Do Providers Need to Know?

Now available on demand

About the Webinar

The Zika virus has appeared on U.S. shores. An uptick in microcephaly cases among newborns in Brazil and the apparent connection with the virus has sounded alarms across the globe. While a lot remains unknown about the virus, experts are certain it isn't going away in a hurry. This rapidly evolving situation raises many questions: What are the symptoms and how can cases be identified? What should providers do to prepare? Who needs to be most vigilant? What role should government and public health officials play? What – if any – lessons are applicable from the West African Ebola outbreak? How can Zika inform preparedness for future infectious disease outbreaks?

By joining this one-hour webinar, attendees can expect to learn:

  • Best practices for preparedness from the U.S. military
  • The latest recommendations from the CDC and forecasts for what's next
  • How a Florida health system on the frontlines is responding
