Global Health - Journal Club - Social


It’s that time again. We are gearing up for another Multi-Disciplinary Global Health Night Out. This series is an opportunity to be exposed to important ideas we need to be familiar with in the field as well as a venue for all of us to become familiar with our colleagues in other departments doing global health work here at Yale.

This time we'll be discussing the Zika Virus outbreak, what is known about the illness, the health ramifications and the ethics of public policy to manage this public health emergency.

We’ll review some recent articles about the condition, including some projections about the prevalence over time. We'll also look at how different countries have proposed dealing with this outbreak and the ethical implications of these different policy choices.

The format is dinner followed by a discussion led by our resident leaders and facilitated by the faculty expert discussants. Articles and other materials will be distributed before the session. It is expected that all who attend will be familiar with the articles so that we can have a really fruitful discussion.

Resident leaders: Zeynap Kubilay (Internal Med) and Lydia Shook (OB)

Faculty discussants: Albert Ko (Infectious Disease and YSPH) and Katherine Campbell (OB/Maternal-Fetal Medicine)

Location: Marigolds Dining Room (just off Edward S. Harkness Hall, Yale School of Medicine)

Dinner will be served. You must RSVP.

Looking forward to see you all soon
