Community conversation series: Mosquitos, babies, and the Zika virus, Apr. 18

The Community Conversation series, hosted by the Northwest Association for Biomedical Research (NWABR), resumes later this month with an examination of the Zika Virus. Despite media attention, there are more questions than answers about the connection between Zika virus infection and abnormal development in babies. Join NWABR to learn what the experts know, and to understand special considerations in research with babies and pregnant women. The discussion will be facilitated by OHSU clinical scientist Dawn Nolt, M.D., M.P.H.

What are Community Conversations?
Each informal Conversation explores a topic in biomedical science and its relationship with ethics, medicine, research, and society, while connecting people to the biomedical research community. The goal of the series is to help people thoughtfully engage in and advance biomedical research. Everyone is welcome. No science background necessary.

In partnership with NWABR members Legacy Research Institute, Oregon Health & Sciences University and Portland State University and supporter Oregon Health Authority
