I attended the 4th Annual Amoeba Summit this past Friday which was hosted by the Jordan Smelski Foundation.
The list of speakers was incredible, the biggest experts on Naegleria fowleri in the country, talking about topics ranging from lab diagnosis to the latest research and everything in between.
In this short interview, I talk to Medical Epidemiologist with the CDC, Jennifer Cope, MD, about the latest on the amoeba incidence and geography both in the US and internationally.
