The 2014-16 Ebola outbreak in western Africa was a devastating pandemic in which healthcare workers confronted soaring contagion and mortality. For the past two years, Columbia faculty have been working to understand how nurses on the frontlines of Ebola succeeded in ending that outbreak, using the methods of oral history to elicit nurses' stories and analyze their significance for health care policymakers going forward. At this event, hear the voices of the Ebola nurses, understand their insights, and consider the implications for all of us today in the battle against COVID-19.
This event is free and open to the public, however RSVP is required. A Zoom link will be shared with registered participants. Please see the event webpage or contact Ayah Eldosougi at [email protected] with any questions.
