Ebola: Preparing for a Substantial New Challenge
Thursday, Feb. 12
1-3 p.m., Please join us for a snack and scintillating conversation after the event!

Is a “new normal” of scary infections upon us?

Join virologist Dr. Eric Poeschla, formerly of the Mayo Clinic and now the Head of the Division of Infectious Diseases at CU’s School of Medicine, and epidemiologist Dr. Michelle Barron, Medical Director of Infection, Control and Prevention, at the University of Colorado Hospital as they discuss Ebola—the disease, the science, the epidemic and the challenges it presents to the health care system. Get the facts on how Ebola causes disease, where it comes from, how epidemics are managed, the value of quarantines, updates on Ebola treatment and prevention, and understand the deep need for supporting research so that in the future we can prevent these outbreaks before they happen!

NO RSVPs needed, please bring a friend.
We will be taking registrations that day.
