Professor from Sierra Leone available to discuss Ebola outbreak
|Fodei J. Batty|
Fodei Batty, an assistant professor of political science, was among those invited to attend at an Ebola Emergency Response Workshop, where experts on West Africa and infectious disease control/prevention presented their recommendations to assist the global Ebola crisis response.
The workshop, held Nov. 6-7 at George Washington University, attracted the expertise of more than 25 of the world's leading anthropologists on implementation issues regarding the Ebola response in the United States, Ebola-affected countries and African regional neighbors. They discussed prevention, control, surveillance, response, treatment, clinical trials and interventions, health communications, risk factors and the streamlining of local, national and international systems of response.
Batty, who is a native of Sierra Leone, has worked as policy analyst in the office of the president of Sierra Leone. If you're interested in interviewing Batty, please contact John Morgan, associate vice president for public relations, at 203-206-4449 (cell) or 203-582-5359 (office).
