Videos by Columbia Experts Shed Light on Ebola

Though there remains much to learn about Ebola, the scientific facts behind transmission were made crystal-clear by Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, assistant professor of epidemiology, in a series of short videos we produced and immediately shared with the entire university, our neighbors, and with local legislators. Because we felt it was important to communicate to multiple audiences in the most accessible manner possible, one video even featured Dr. El-Sayed explaining how Ebola is not transmitted. After this series was created, Columbia University Medical Center pediatrician Dr. Dodi Meyer did the honors in Spanish.
