More details on Ebola Grand Rounds @Sinai Hospital today

Just wanted to let you know of a VERY exciting opportunity to learn from Linda Mobula and Kent Brantly as they speak on their time in Liberia during the Ebola crisis! (They are both Christian physicians, and Linda did her MPH here at Hopkins!)

They are coming to Baltimore's Sinai Hospital today, Tuesday 4/25, for the 2017 Allen Schwartz MD Lectureship -- Providers as Global Citizens: When Diseases Go Viral. There are exciting talks scheduled all day; see below for the schedule!

I highly encourage you attend if you have a chance! Drs. Mobula and Brantly were also key features of the Samaritan's Purse documentary Facing Darkness recently released in theaters.
