Conference Spotlight: Ebola From The Nursing Perspective with Dr. Gloria Cater
Ebola. The very word scares us all. With thousands dead in West Africa and the recent death of Thomas Duncan in Texas who then infected two staff nurses at the hospital where he was being treated, what should we know about Ebola? And how can we prepare for new cases or other transmittable diseases that frighten us to death?
Rev. Dr. Gloria Cater to the rescue. Veteran nurse. Retired college Dean. Minister to those in need. Dr. Cater will be a Roundtable Presenter at the November 6th Multicultural Conference at UMass Boston. She’ll be on hand to detail the timeline of Ebola, while addressing its impact for a healthcare perspective.
It’s a session you won’t want to miss.
