Paul Brockmann, "Ebola- Panic or Pragmatic? Reflections and Lessons from a Crisis"

Wednesday, April 22, 2015, 4:30pm, Baker Hall A51

Paul Brockmann has worked with Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders since 2005, most recently launching an effort in Sierra Leone last year to help train and prepare management teams from other organizations to safely and effectively take on a direct role in Ebola patient care. During this presentation, he'll talk about his own personal and professional experiences in this context, with reflections on lessons learned and hopes for the future response to health care crises in resource-poor settings around the world.
