With new outbreaks of the virus diminished in West Africa, it may be time to ask how effective domestic and international responses to the crisis have been, and what lessons have been learned for the future.

J. Stephen Morrison and Andrew Weber are two leading strategists and actors in helping to frame the US response to the Ebola outbreak. They are uniquely positioned to discuss how the United States and the international community have responded to this crisis.

Dr. Sechler has worked in Liberia since 2010 to educate health care workers, strengthen health care systems and develop local capacity to cope with crises like the Ebola epidemic.

Join us for a Warburg Program panel discussion that brings together local and global perspectives on the Ebola crisis, and projects into the future the experiences we’ve gained.
