Biography

The Ebola epidemic in Western Africa (Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Nigeria) infected tens of thousands of individuals with an approximately 60% fatality rate.  This outbreak challenged the local, regional, and national medical community to prevent a global pandemic.  The global response involving logistical, epidemiological, public health, and medical interventions slowed and eventually contained the spread.  The experiences and lessons learned awakened the global medical community to the fragility of the global health response system and provides a template from which to address future pandemics.
