NCBDDD DirectorThis week, HHS posted a blog, “Zika and Pregnancy: Protecting Babies, Protecting Yourself”, written by CDC’s Dr. Margaret Honein, Birth Defects Branch Chief with NCBDDD, and Co-lead of the Pregnancy and Birth Defects Task Force with CDC’s Zika response. You can read the blog here: https://www.hhs.gov/blog/2017/05/15/zika-and-pregnancy-protecting-babies-protecting-yourself.html. The blog highlights the current data and steps for prevention during pregnancy.

We encourage you to share the blog with your members and colleagues.  Thank you again in helping us protect pregnant women and their babies from the devastating consequences of Zika virus infection.
