Lecture delivered by Ellen Einterz, MD, MPH (Director of Kolfata District Hospital in Cameroon and Medical Coordinator of the Ebola Treatment Unit in Buchanan, Liberia) on October 12, 2015. This talk covers the disease in a non-technical way by providing a short history of Ebola, the various reasons why the epidemic got out of control, how it went away, why the United States got involved, and the setup of the U.S. Ebola Treatment Center in Liberia. Based on her personal experience, Dr. Einterz also comments on the hidden cost of the epidemic, what we did right and what we got wrong, and how we might do better next time.
