Mosquitoes and the Diseases They Carry

Not all mosquitoes feed on human and mammal hosts, and a few globally distributed species account for the bulk of infectious pathogens transmitted to humans and domestic animals. Part 1 of Disease Vectors of the U.S.A. will focus on why mosquitos are such prominent disease carriers, the diseases that they transmit, and how you can protect your family and pets

Moderator: Yvonne Linton, PhD-  National Museum of Natural History and the Walter Reed Biosystematics Unit (WRBU)

Speakers: David Pecor, Researcher at the National Museum of Natural History and the Walter Reed Biosystematics Unit (WRBU), Carina Blackmore, DVM PhD, Director for the Division of Disease Control and Health Protection for the Florida Department of Health
