Conor O'Neill's Traditional Irish Pub, 318 South Main Street, Ann Arbor MI

Join two faculty from the U-M School of Public Health as we explore Ebola science, fears, and the difficult realities of the epidemic in West Africa. Which public health policies and social responses can effectively contain the outbreak, both in West Africa and here in the US? Join Dr. Arnold Monto, an internationally known expert who can discuss transmission modes and epidemic planning, and Dr. Joseph Eisenberg, whose work (with others) on infectious disease transmission modeling has informed recent Ebola projections of future infection rates and deaths.

Science Cafés provide an opportunity for audiences to discuss current science topics with experts in an informal setting. All Science Cafés take place at Conor O’Neill’s Traditional Irish Pub, 318 South Main Street, Ann Arbor. Hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 pm; program 6:00 pm–7:30 pm.
