We thank Children’s National Hospital for supporting our Congenital Zika Program. We appreciate the work of Diedtra Henderson, senior public relations specialist/science writer at Children’s National Hospital for helping to share the work of CZPCN regionally, nationally, and internationally. In some cases, this news led to patients traveling from afar to seek our consultation. We thank the women, their families, and the infants whom we have cared for who have been affected by ZIKV.
