The Intersection of Public Health and Health Care—The Role of Law, Part VI: One Year of Ebola—Legal Issues and Considerations (Fundamental) On Demand Recording

Recorded On: 11/20/2015

The 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other U.S. health organizations have been instrumental in providing ongoing response to the 2014 outbreak. This webinar will examine the current state of Ebola in West Africa, the legal considerations implicated in the U.S. response to the outbreak, state Ebola screening and monitoring policies and their evolution over the past year, and how health care settings are legally preparing for the next threat. Speakers will be available to answer questions after the presentation.
