  1. The presentation was informative. I heard of River blindness but did not realize the bite from a fly was the origin of the infection.

  2. it is interesting and very informative presentation. Is this River Blindness disease occurs only in Africa or other countries as well? Is there any population that affected by the diseases in the United States ?

    I just wonder insecticides to kill black flies that cause another health problems, such as respiratory and skin problems when they are spread in the air by helicopters and aircraft. People can be exposed the toxic chemicals. Do you have any thoughts?
    Nice post! Thank you
