Investigators of the Pilot Project “Risk Communication and Community Engagement to Address Zika Virus Prevention” shared results of their study with community members.

On March 28, Drs. Deborah Juarbe and Mildred Vera, investigators of the Pilot Project  “Risk Communication and Community Engagement to Address Zika Virus Prevention” visited the Manuel A. Pérez public housing complex to meet and share a dinner with community leaders. At the meeting,  members of the Board of Directors informed the investigators about their experiences after the passage of Hurricane Maria. They also  reiterated their commitment to participate in research activities that benefit the residents. The community leaders were informed that the results of the pilot project in which they participated were accepted for publication and copies of the publication will be shared. This activity  was designed to maintain the robust partnership developed at Manual A. Pérez while conducting the study. . The Risk Communication and Community Engagement to Address Zika Virus Prevention study is supported by NIMHD RCMI Grant U54-MD007600.
