Webinar: Beyond the Basics – The Impact of Zika Virus on Vision and Hearing
September 5, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This webinar is the next in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Webinar Series on Zika Virus Syndrome titled, “Beyond the Basics: The Impact of Zika Virus on Vision and Hearing”.
Babies born with Congenital Zika Virus Syndrome (CZVS) can have other findings beyond microcephaly. Often, these infants are seen with vision and hearing abnormalities that may be present at birth, however, these can emerge later. The research in this area is still evolving as more and more babies are born. Experts are seeing a wide range of severity of issues, and are using different methods to treat these infants. During this webinar, participants will learn more about the vision and hearing findings seen in infants with CZVS, new research in this area, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for evaluation and treatment, and about long term care strategies. By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the vision and hearing findings seen in infants born with CZVS.
Understand the landscape of research in the area of Zika virus’ impact on vision and hearing.
- Know what guidance for evaluation, treatment, and long-term care a pediatrician can use when seeing a patient with possible or confirmed CZVS.
Submit questions ahead of time to DisasterReady@aap.org or live during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
