I believe that knowing what the general population does and does not know about a pathogen and their motivation behind taking precautions against certain pathogens are an important part of helping prevent epidemics and pandemics. I believe health care professionals can use this information to better inform the public and to better motivate them to take the necessary precautions against pathogens.
My current work is to find what college students know about Zika, what misconceptions they have, what precautions they are willing to take and why, and what the world is tweeting about Zika.
