Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, we talk with Dr. Laura Evans from Bellevue Hospital Center and Dr. Michael Phillips from NYU Langone Health System. They talk to us about the Ebola crisis in 2014, what capabilities were built as a result of the emergency funding, and how it protects us from much more than just Ebola. We also talk about the complexity of treating Ebola from a clinical perspective all the way to a regional healthcare systems level, and why sustained investments are critical to our health security.
