Ebola workshop for health leaders set for August in Atlanta

The National Ebola Training and Education Center will hold a workshop Aug. 7 and 8 at the Emory University Conference Center in Atlanta to prepare healthcare leaders for Ebola and other emerging infectious diseases.

Hospital attendees may include medical, laboratory and/or nursing staff, administration, education/training leadership and infection control leadership.

NETEC also is offering the two-day workshop later this year in Omaha, Neb., and Boston and will hold workshops next year in Denver, Baltimore and Spokane, Wash.

Since April, the Democratic Republic of Congo has reported 46 Ebola cases and 26 deaths, according to the World Health Organization. The African nation is preparing to offer health workers and other high-risk populations an experimental vaccine that proved to be protective against the virus in a major 2015 trial in Guinea.
