June Med School Café – Mosquito-Borne Illnesses: What You Need To Know

The June Med School Café lecture will feature Dr. Kevin Green, an associate professor of internal medicine at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and an infectious disease specialist with USA Physicians Group.

His lecture, titled “Mosquito Borne Illnesses: What You Need To Know,” will be held on June 22, 2016, at the USA Faculty Club on USA’s main campus. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation begins at noon.

Recently, the Zika virus has received international attention. Those infected may show a variety of symptoms or none at all, but in pregnant women, the Zika virus has been linked to a variety of birth defects.

Dr. Green will lecture about the Zika virus as well as other mosquito-borne illnesses. He will discuss the history and symptoms of the viruses and explain how residents along the Gulf Coast can protect themselves from infection.

Dr. Green earned his medical degree and completed his residency training at USA. He completed his fellowship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center Children's Hospital in Nashville, Tenn.

The Med School Café lecture and lunch are provided free of charge, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, call Kim Partridge at (251) 460-7770 or e-mail kepartridge@health.southalabama.edu.

Med School Café is a free community lecture series sponsored by the USA Physicians Group. Each month, faculty from the USA College of Medicine share their expertise on a specific medical condition, providing insight on the latest treatment available.
