The Manitoba Travel Health Network hosted its first Provincial Webinar on May 1, 2019 from 2:20 pm – 3:50 pm, with a 90 minute presentation and Q & A by Dr Steven Schofield.

Steven is a member of CATMAT and a Senior Advisor to the Communicable Disease Control Program, with National Defence, Government of Canada.

The following topics were discussed:

  • JE, Rabies and Zika virus with a focus on epidemiologic context; risk assessment and decision-making on whether or not to recommend a vaccine, including the differences between WHO and CIG on rabies recommendations; and informing of clinical trials.  

If you were unable to attend the Webinar, a video of this session can be viewed at the following link.

We ask that you please take the time (less than 1 minute) to complete this quick Evaluation, so we can see what we did well and how we can improve for next time. Thank you!


Revised: May 2, 2019
