Community invited to Zika Virus Panel Discussion 7 p.m. Feb. 13
Guest Speakers include James M. Wilson, M.D., Director of Nevada Center for Infectious Disease Forecasting

We know Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. Zika can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus and cause certain birth defects if infected during pregnancy. There is no vaccine or medicine for the Zika Virus.

Learn more about prevention, symptoms, transmission and complications of the Zika Virus by attending an expert panel discussion brought to the community by Great Basin College, B(S)3N Science club, and Nevada INBRE.
