As pediatricians in South Florida continue to care for the children with confirmed cases of Congenital Zika Syndrome and those who were exposed to the Zika virus in utero, additional education is needed regarding the known effects of the Zika virus on infants and children as well as the recommended screenings to be performed as the child develops.  

To effectively expand upon the work completed through this project over the past couple years, FCAAP will host a FREE one‐day accredited educational conference for pediatric healthcare providers. Sessions will be led by South Florida area experts with experience caring for Zika exposed and infected children. Topics will include:

How to Screen for Zika‐Related Ophthalmological Defects –
How to Screen for Zika‐Related Audiological Defects – Dr. Robert Fifer
How to Screen for Zika‐Related Neurodevelopmental Defects – Dr. Alysa Pensirikul
Local Radiological Research Findings Related to Zika‐Infected Children – Dr. Gaurav Saigal
Local Nephrological Research Findings Related to Zika‐Infected Children – Dr. Chryso Katsoufis
Local Cardiological Research Findings Related to Zika‐Infected Children – Dr. Juanita Hunter
End Organ Damage Correlation to Zika Exposure – Dr. Ivan Gonzalez
