The day will feature a keynote speaker, posters, excellence in global health mentorship awards, photography awards, and student presentations.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Ian Crozier, Ebola Survivor
Talk Title: Perspectives from the Ebola bedside: doctor becomes patient
Dr. Ian Crozier is a Vanderbilt-trained infectious diseases specialist originally from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Over the past six years, primarily at the Infectious Diseases Institute in Kampala, Uganda, he has focused on developing clinical reasoning skills in African clinicians providing complex care in HIV/AIDS. In August 2014, he was deployed by the World Health Organization to the Ebola Treatment Unit at Kenema General Hospital in Sierra Leone. After becoming infected, he was evacuated to Emory University Hospital, becoming critically ill, but emerging last October after a 6 week hospitalization. He has been called potentially the sickest Ebola survivor ever.
Join us for a discussion about the Hopkins response to Ebola. Featuring:
Dr. Brian Garibaldi - Design & Construction of the Biocontainment Unit
Dr. Linda Mobula - Early Response & Ethical Challenges
David Narrow - Innovation in Personal Protective Equipment
