Guest: Jewish Scientist Leading Zika Virus & Middle East Social Change Yjp Dinner, Class & Social says
At this week's weekly young Jewish professional (20s & 30s) dinner, class & social we will have a special guest, Peter J. Hotez, M.D., Ph.D.

Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Hotez is developing new vaccines for the world's poor.

Recent global conflicts and upheavals are shaping the emergence of epidemic and neglected diseases, especially through poverty, conflict, climate change, and urbanization. Of the new hot spot areas and concerns are the Zika virus predicted arrival to the US homeland and the Middle East for which Dr. Hotez is the White House and State Dept. US Science Envoy.
