Eva Lathrop, MD, MPH served as the lead for contraception on the Pregnancy and Birth Defects Task Force during CDC’s Zika virus response efforts. Two other Emory faculty members, Denise Jamieson, MD, MPH, and Erin Berry-Bibee, MD, MPH, both with Emory’s Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, also worked on the Z-CAN program. The program was designed to prevent unintended pregnancies and reduce birth defects during the height of the 2016-17 Zika virus outbreak in Puerto Rico and successfully served more than 21,000 women during a 16-month period.
