Event Registration - Medical Pre-Meeting Course - Vector-Borne Disease Risk and Prevention for the Clinician 20 Badges VIRTUAL PMC Medical.jpg
Thursday, November 12, 2020
Blood-sucking insects and ticks transmit some of the most devastating, yet, in many cases, preventable human diseases including malaria, dengue, chikungunya, Zika, Lyme disease, leishmaniasis and Chagas disease. In this course, we will review the basic biology of major arthropod vectors; discuss the geographic and behavioral risks posed by vector-borne diseases; and review preventive options, including personal protection and environmental control methods. The course is designed to help medical professionals advise their patients about the risks and prevention measures against biting insects and ticks.
Course Co-chairs: Christopher Barker, PhD and Laura Harrington, PhD
