IDWeek 2016: Not-to-Miss Sessions Featuring the Latest on the Zika Outbreak

IDWeek 2016 promises to be a great educational opportunity for professionals to hear first-hand accounts from experts managing current infectious diseases outbreaks, with a special emphasis this year on the ongoing Zika epidemic. Learn about the newest diagnostic and treatment modalities; apply state-of-the-art science to clinical care; and network with colleagues from around the world.

The following sessions will focus on the effects of Zika and what clinicians need to know to help their patients:

Zika Zymposium I: Epidemiology, Virology, and Countermeasures will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 26 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. and will feature presentations from Lyle Petersen, MD, MPH, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Helen Lazear, PhD, from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine; and Mark Mulligan, MD, FIDSA, with the Hope Clinic at Emory University.

Later that same day, during the Opening Plenary from 3:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., there will be a presentation from the front lines titled “Zika Virus: New Lessons and Future Challenges from an Area of Endemicity” from Mauro Schecter, MD, PhD, with the Projeto Praça Onze in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Finally, Zika Zymposium II: Post-Infectious Sequelae and Clinical Guidance will take place on Friday, Oct. 28 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
