In this #SocialSeries conversation, we explore what it is like to work on the front lines of the Ebola epidemic and the social and cultural impacts at home. Dr. John Nwangwu, professor of epidemiology, will share his first-hand experience working as a consultant for the World Health organization in West africa, where he and his team investigated the Ebola virus disease outbreak and provided control strategies to the government.
We will also discuss the social, economic and political dimensions of Ebola with Dr. Kathleen Skoczen, chair of anthropology, and consider lessons from the HIV epidemic in the United States to help address the Ebola epidemic today.
