On January 22, 2015 educators joined Global Classroom to examine the impact of the Ebola epidemic on West Africa’s public health, education, and economy. Dr. Matthew Sparke, Professor of Global Health at the University of Washington, introduced teachers to current global health trends. Next, a panel discussion addressed the future implications of the Ebola epidemic. Our panelists included Dr. Ann Marie Kimball, MD, MPH, FACPM, Physician and Epidemiologist, Dr. David Townes, MD, MPH, DTM&H, Professor of Emergency Medicine, Eric Williams, MPH, Director of williamsworks, and Philip Eckoff, PhD, Principal Investigator at Intellectual Ventures.
