Management of Ebola funds in Sierra Leone

Fodei J. Batty

Fodei Batty, an assistant professor of political science, is in the waning days of a 21-day government-mandated monitoring imposed on people who are returning to the United States from the countries in West Africa that were affected by the Ebola outbreak.

"I take my temperature twice a day and report to two health officials from the Quinnipiack Valley Health District over the phone," Batty wrote in the attached op-ed, "Ebola Epidemic's Legacy Of Fear And Corruption," which appears in today's Hartford Courant. "I keep wondering, however, if these precautionary measures really would be necessary if the American people had an accurate picture of how the epidemic unfolded since last year."

Batty, who has shown no signs of the disease, was a policy analyst in the office of the president of Sierra Leone from 2007 to 2009. He is available for Skype and telephone interviews.

If you're interested in speaking to Batty, please contact John Morgan, associate vice president for public relations, at 203-206-4449 (cell) or 203-582-5359 (office).
