Nebraska Ebola Response Team Impacting Public Health in Uganda

Dr. James Lawler and the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit team at the Nyakabande Refugee Center.

On this episode of the Disaster Podcast, we have podcast community member nurse Jeff Peters on to share his experience with the Nebraska Medicine Ebola Response Team on a recent trip to Uganda to help educate the public health professionals there on how to protect themselves from exposure to deadly pathogens during Ebola outbreaks.

The team has also put in place online training Ebola PPE and other infection control training for health professionals everywhere. Jeff also referred to the National Ebola Training and Education Center, based there in Nebraska, as a resource for the U.S. healthcare community.

Also on the show are co-hosts Sam Bradley, Jamie Davis.
