Hope for the Best; Prepare for the Worst: Minnesota’s Strategy for Tackling Ebola

Date: Friday, December 19, 2014 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM
Venue: River Room / Town and Country Club  Saint Paul, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $30.00


Deadline to Register:  Tuesday, December 16, 2014

As countries around the world work to aid the West African countries hardest hit by the Ebola outbreak, state and local governments, along with health care providers, face their own set of unique challenges.  Questions like how to prepare for such a deadly disease, clouded by misinformation and almost certain to create panic among the population, are extremely daunting.  Meanwhile, the hospitals, physicians and nurses likely to be at the front line in the event a patient contracts Ebola need to know not only what to do to detect and treat the disease, but how to stop it from spreading to other people—including themselves.  The Minnesota Health Department has taken the lead in our state in raising awareness about this disease, its transmission and helping to coordinate a state-wide strategy to tackle Ebola if it ever shows up here.  Meanwhile, four hospitals, including University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, have been selected to be prepared to detect, isolate and treat Ebola cases in Minnesota.  Please join the Health Law Section for a discussion of this fascinating public health and emergency management event from some of the key players who have helped Minnesota get prepared.

Please join us for breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m., followed by the program from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m.

Breakfast will be provided.  Special meal requests need to be received no later than Tuesday, December 16.
