About Dr. LaBeaud

Dr. LaBeaud is a professor of pediatrics and infectious diseases and physician-scientist who has devoted much of her efforts to better understanding the risk factors and long-term health consequences of arboviral infections, including Rift Valley fever, chikungunya, and dengue virus.

She will discuss her career path and work, focusing on her recent community engagement efforts to address the connection between plastic trash and mosquito-borne illness in Kenya, which has led to the creation of the nonprofit, HERI-Kenya.

Following the presentation, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with Dr. LaBeaud, moderated by Wasan Kumar, Stanford Medicine student and co-chair of the Organization for Global Health.
