Health Panel Presents Perspectives on Ebola on Oct. 24

There is no question that Ebola is a terrible disease with a very high mortality rate, but is there really a big risk to people in the U.S.?  How does the virus spread? What plans are in place should someone from the University community come down with a suspected case? And what is the risk for our nursing students, many of whom do their clinicals in area hospitals?

All members of the University community are invited to attend a health panel hosted by the School of Nursing on Friday, Oct. 24 at 11 a.m. in Gonzaga Auditorium. Dr. Jessica Planas will share the facts about this disease and Center for Disease Control guidelines for staying safe. A panel including Dr. Tom Pellegrino of Student Affairs, Julia Duffy of the Health Center, Michael Rini of the Office of International Programs, and Dr. Jaclyn Conelius from the School of Nursing will share their perspectives, and be available to answer questions. School of Nursing Dean Meredith Kazer will moderate.

The panel will be videotaped and made available online at a future date.
