GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich Hospital will host a public meeting about the Zika virus in the Noble Conference Center on April 7.

“Information about the Zika virus is constantly evolving, making it crucial for women and their physicians to stay informed about the best ways to reduce the risk of maternal infection, get tested for the virus and manage potential complications during pregnancy,” said Dr. Caroline Stella, assistant medical director of perinatology.

"Let's Talk About Zika!" is open to obstetricians, women who are pregnant or trying to get pregnant and other community members.

Speakers include Dr. Stella; Heather Kamen, a prenatal genetic counselor; and Dr. James Sabetta, director of infectious diseases.

Connecticut has one confirmed case of the mosquito-borne virus, which has been linked to birth defects and developmental issues in children born to infected mothers.

The hourlong meeting will begin at noon. Lunch will be provided.

Noble Conference Center is located at 5 Perryridge Road.
