Rift Valley Fever: Preventing Deadly Outbreaks

December 12, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-5

EcoHealth Alliance

Join EcoHealth Alliance and a team of leading experts on December 12, 2018 as they talk about the work they’re doing to stop Rift Valley fever outbreaks.

Massive losses in livestock. Hemorrhagic disease in people. Spread by mosquitoes. Weaponizable. Rift Valley fever is a nasty disease capable of destroying livelihoods, crippling industries, and dramatically reducing food security worldwide. And we don’t know nearly enough about it.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. William Karesh, EcoHealth Alliance
  • Dr. Melinda Rostal, EcoHealth Alliance
  • Dr. Assaf Anyamba, USRA & NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
  • Mr. Douglas Gorsline, Defense Threat Reduction Agency

Wine and light fare will be served.
