Dear Colleagues,

As you know, UCSF has been working on multiple fronts in the worldwide effort to contain Ebola, from preparing at home to treat a possible Ebola patient to training health care workers in infection control in West Africa. Please join UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood as he recognizes UCSF volunteers who have responded to the Ebola epidemic during a special town hall meeting on Thursday, Feb. 26, from noon to 1 p.m. at Mission Bay in Rock Hall – Pottruck Auditorium.

We are exceptionally proud of all of our volunteers – doctors, nurses, scientists, and others – who have responded to this public health crisis, often putting their own lives on the line. This is an opportunity to recognize them and hear about their work in West Africa and at UCSF.

The town hall will be streamed live on the web. For more details about the town hall and the link to the stream as well as to watch a video highlighting global Ebola responders, please see this story:
