Ebola Faculty and Community Discussion Forum

Emory Ebola Faculty and Community Discussion Forum

The Emory community is engaged in global efforts to address the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, the largest outbreak of this deadly disease in history.

This spring, all schools at Emory are joining forces to sponsor a community-wide forum to explore multiple, integrated dimensions of the impact of the pandemic on public health, development, governance, public policy, law and civil liberties, economics and religion/culture as well as related ethical considerations. Speakers will include experts from across the University, from The Carter Center, the CDC and from partners in West Africa. The forum is being organized by the Institute of African Studies, the Institute for Developing Nations, and the Nell Hodgson School of Nursing.

Each session will be open to all interested faculty, students and affiliated partners. 

To join the discussion, please follow @idn_emory and use #EmoryEbolaForum
