CGPH fellow and faculty research on Zika virus in urban slums highlighted in Berkeley News
On Thursday, March 23, 2017, UC Berkeley News published a story highlighting the work of two former Center for Global Public Health Fellows, Robert Snyder (2013 Fellow and current Program Manager) and Claire Boone (2016 Fellow), their faculty mentor and CGPH steering committee member Lee W. Riley, and several Brazilian colleagues from the Universidade Federal Fluminense (Niterói, RJ, Brazil). Snyder and Boone both spent several months in the summer of 2016 in Brazil studying the dynamics of disease in urban slums, and were compelled to explore the emerging dynamics of the Zika virus in these communities.
