Doctor to speak about his account with ebola
On Wednesday, October 18th at 7:00 p.m., there will be a talk about Ebola by Dr. Steven Hatch. Dr. Hatch, an infectious disease specialist, has written a book called Inferno: A Doctor’s Ebola Story. This is his account of the epidemic that nearly consumed the nation of Liberia, as he came to work there in November 2013 and six months later, several of the physicians he had served with were either dead or unable to work, and Ebola had become a world health emergency. Powerful and clear-eyed, this book not only explores a deadly virus and an afflicted country, but also reveals how the Ebola outbreak stoked nativist anxieties that were exploited for political gain in the U.S. and around the world. A book signing will follow this interesting author talk.
