Every day, Doctors Without Borders aid workers from around the world provide assistance to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe—treating those most in need regardless of political, religious, or economic interest. Whether an emergency involves armed conflicts or epidemics, malnutrition or natural disasters, Doctors Without Borders is committed to bringing quality medical care to people caught in crisis
On TUESDAY, AUGUST 12, experienced medical and non-medical professionals are invited to join us for a live teleconference and webinar to learn more about the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa and the work MSF is doing to respond to the situation.
MSF-USA Tropical Medicine Advisor, Estrella Lasry, will give an overview of the Ebola outbreak and MSF's response, and MSF-USA aid workers, Carissa Guild and Philip Sacks will share reflections from their recent assignments in Guinea and Sierra Leone. Participants will be able to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
The presentation will last 90 minutes, including Q&A.
This event is a LIVE teleconference and webinar.
You will call a toll-free number to hear the audio portion of the presentation over your phone (mobile or land line). The optional (but recommended) web component includes a PowerPoint slideshow and the opportunity to ask questions via live chat.
