    As the Zika virus moves deeper into North America, different sectors of U.S. society are mobilizing to address the epidemic by preventing the spread of the virus, identifying patients, treating affected individuals, and working toward a vaccine. How Zika is addressed in the United States and our own community in Baltimore will be greatly informed by the experience of countries in South and Central American where the virus first emerged.

    Come learn from faculty members at University of Maryland Baltimore who are using their expertise to develop and refine the legal, medical and regulatory tools needed to face a new epidemic and from the Costa Rican Ambassador to the United States who brings his perspective as both a government official in an affected country and a biotechnologist.


    Dr. Roman Macaya, Ambassador of Costa Rica to the United States. Ambassador Macaya has a multidisciplinary background as a scientist, businessman, advocate, politician and academic and has led R&D teams in the fields of biotechnology and biomedical research.

    Dr. Kathleen Neuzil, Director, Center for Vaccine Development at University of Maryland School of Medicine. CVD has been chosen as one of three study sites in a human safety trial of a new Zika vaccine.

    Dr. Jon Mark Hirshon, Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine and in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and co-author of “Zika Virus: Critical Information for Emergency Providers.”

    On December 11, 2017 CHHS convened a workshop to discuss a forthcoming article by CHHS Senior Fellow David Delaney and leading behavioral scientist Dr. Paul Slovic. Conducted under the Chatham House Rule to promote openness and sharing, the workshop invited feedback from a group of legal scholars, psychology researchers, and attorneys who served in senior national security positions between 1993 and 2013.

    The group tackled challenging issues that Delaney and Slovic raise in their article: the quality of U.S. strategic planning; challenges government official face when equally desirable security and humanitarian values are in conflict; the role of law and theory shaping policy choices; and opportunities for lawyers to help improve policy decisions. We invite you to review the discussion highlights below and become involved in related research, education, and public programs to improve democratic governance.
