Summary

When it comes to menopause, we all get there at different times, with different circumstances, for different reasons, and at different times in our lives. There’s not one thing about menopause that’s exactly the same for any one of us—but we all arrive at that place, that intersection, at some point or another. Midlife is about infinitely more than menopause. And while menopause plays a role, it’s not the be-all, end-all of midlife.

Summary

Did you know that Malaria continues to kill 1 million people worldwide each year, mostly children under the age of 5?

Join us and learn what you need to know about infectious diseases that pose a global health risk? 

Mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit are a constant health risk in tropical areas of the World. With increased global travel and trade, infected mosquitoes or infected humans increase disease burdens in areas previously not affected, including USA. West Nile virus invaded the east coast of USA in the 1990’s and is now a threat to humans across the country. Recent outbreaks of Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever viruses in the Caribbean and South & Central American pose real threats for establishment here too.

Don’t miss this event.  Yvonne will discuss the complexity of the issues in controlling these mosquito-borne viral diseases both here and in the Syrian refugee camps, and modern approaches to surveillance for both the diseases and the mosquito vectors
