Featuring Keynote Addresses by Marcos Espinal, Director, Department of Communicable Diseases and Health Analysis at the Pan American Health Organization, and Jesse L. Goodman, Director, Center on Medical Product Access, Safety and Stewardship at Georgetown University, as well as discussions with other thought leaders, this interdisciplinary dialogue on the Zika epidemic seeks to examine the current state of public health and research efforts to combat the spread of the Zika virus as well as to stimulate a conversation at the intersection of science and policy to advance solutions.

This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Biology, the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, and the Center for Latin American Studies. It is part of a semester-long dialogue on "The Global Future of Security," organized as part of Georgetown's Global Futures Initiative.
