Zika – What Parents Must Know: Teleclass Re-cap

Zika2 Everyone’s preparing to leave for the holidays, including caregivers, who may be headed to regions where Zika has been reported.

Last week, we held a highly informative and important teleclass for Zika tips from Dr. Dania Rumbak, Head Pediatrician for Baby Doctor – our generous sponsor.

Dr. Rumbak helped participants understand what Zika is, how it may be contracted, where there are epidemics, symptoms to watch for, who may be affected by the virus, how to lower you and your children’s risk of contracting the virus, and more.
