Ebola, Culture, and Politics
September 12, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Barry Hewlett, PhD, professor of anthropology at WSU Vancouver, was the first social scientist to be invited by the World Health Organization to work on Ebola control efforts in central Africa. Join him on an improbable journey through the heart of Africa to discover how local people view epidemics and how their knowledge and practices can help to control outbreaks and learn how other countries might use the insights of anthropologists to design more effective public health campaigns around other epidemics.
