The initial outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EBV) in West Africa presented many ethical, legal, logistical and clinical challenges for first responders, clinicians, politicians and researchers. These challenges have been magnified now that EBV has crossed the Atlantic, transforming the public conversation from a worrisome public health challenge "over there" to one we need to address over here.

On Friday, Oct. 24 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., a group of experts in the ethical, legal, public health and clinical care implications will discuss several key issues facing patients, practitioners and the public. The program will take place in Room 375 of Inlow Hall at IU McKinney.

Following short presentations, an open dialogue will allow for an exchange of perspectives. More information and registration details can be found hereDon't miss this unique opportunity for a very important discussion.
