Webinar | Can we eliminate the impacts of congenital CMV?
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus that rarely causes problems in healthy people. However, if women develop CMV infection during their pregnancy, they can pass the virus onto their baby – this is congenital cytomegalovirus. While uncommon, congenital CMV can cause developmental difficulties and accounts for around 15-20% of childhood hearing loss that affects both ears.
Join as the panel explore:
- the impact of congenital CMV on children's health and development
- the action being taken to identify congenital CMV early
- whether congenital CMV can be eliminated.
Panellists: Dr Valerie Sung, Dr Hayley Smithers-Sheedy, Emma Webb and Kate Daly.
Participants will have an opportunity to enage in a Q&A with the panel.
