The Global Affairs Center at Shoreline Community College, will present a FREE program this Wednesday, featuring two of the college’s premier faculty members who will discuss the Zika Virus and the dangers it poses, especially for pregnant women.

The World Health Organization declared a "public health emergency of international concern" on February 1 over the Zika virus and the health problems that doctors fear it is causing.

Zika virus is spread to people through mosquito bites. Of particular concern are reports of pregnant women giving birth to babies with birth defects and poor pregnancy outcomes as a result of contracting the virus.

The program starts at 11:30am, and is open to the public.

NOTE: This program will be in Room 2308 (Nursing Building). There will be signs and maps to guide visitors to the building. There is a small fee for parking on campus before 4:00 pm ($3, up to 2 hours).

The campus is located at 16101 Greenwood Ave N in Shoreline 98133.
