Petersen honored for Leishmaniasis study

A paper co-authored by Christine Petersen, professor of epidemiology in the College of Public Health, has been selected for publication in WorldLeish-6, a collection of research papers about the parasitic disease Leishmaniasis that’s being published in connection with an international conference in Toledo, Spain, in May 2017.

Peterson’s paper, “A Mother’s Gift: Congenital Transmission of Trypanosoma and Leishmania Species,” examines how the disease is spread from mothers to their children.
