Nevada, Reno: Wilson Publishes Press Release About Ebola Outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo

Dr. James Wilson, an Associate Research Professor and the Director of the Nevada Medical Intelligence Center for the School of Community Health Sciences at the University of Nevada, Reno recently published a press release entitled “Ebola Outbreak in the DRC Commentary” in collaboration with the Global Health Security Alliance (GloHSA).  During Wilson’s most recent trip to Berlin for the World Health Summit, he founded GloHSA, and contributed to a discussion about the presence of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  Within the press release, Wilson and co-authors note the expected public health outcomes associated with allowing the outbreak to “run its course”, including hyperbole in the media and the potential for herd immunity developing.
