MUSC Center for Global Health to host PBS Frontline film screening of "Ebola Outbreak" and panel discussion

Join the MUSC Center for Global Health as we screen PBS Frontline’s documentary, Ebola Outbreak highlighting the struggles containing and managing the latest outbreak in West Africa. Immediately following the 30-minute screening, MUSC and community experts will lead a panel discussion addressing a wide range of themes including the infectious disease control challenges and the public health aspects of the epidemic, and the mental health challenges facing the community and health care workers as they battle this crisis.  Jeffery Deal, MD, MA from Water Missions will share his perspectives from the field, having just returned from Liberia where he played a role in training front line workers.
