America’s recent measles virus (MeV) outbreak has sent the nation back in time. In the first few months of 2019, the epidemic reached the worst level in a single calendar year since the disease was declared eliminated in the U.S. in 2000. The significant rise in MeV activity has left laboratories, physicians, hospitals, and public health facilities scrambling to diagnose, treat, and prevent this vaccine-preventable disease. Lead by leaders from the CDC’s Viral Vaccine Preventable Diseases Branch, this webinar will take a deep dive into the biology, epidemiology/transmission, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and prevention of MeV and offer valuable insights into the epidemiology of the most recent outbreaks here in the U.S.
 
Upon completion of the webinar, the participant should be able to: 

  • Define the current epidemiology of measles virus in the United States
  • Identify the risk factors for and clinical presentation of measles virus infection
  • Describe the appropriate diagnostic testing for suspected measles virus cases
