Event description

Description

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.

Join EcoHealth Alliance and a team of leading experts as they talk about the work they're doing to stop Rift Valley fever outbreaks:

  • 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.
