NPLI and Ebola

Leadership of the response to Ebola by and in the United States has been in the spotlight in Congress, the media, and kitchen tables across the country. Alumni of the NPLI are on the front lines of the response from West Africa to Boston, Atlanta, Washington, DC, and beyond.

NPLI faculty have embarked on a series of interviews with alumni at the CDC and other officials at involved agencies to capture lessons learned and insights that can help inform leadership activity over both the short- and long-term. If you are involved in the response and would like to be interviewed, please be in touch. Watch for a report on the findings in the weeks ahead.

In the meantime, please read the piece from WBUR on leadership lessons from the Boston Marathon response that can inform the efforts to tame Ebola written by NPLI faculty as well as this compelling op-ed by NPLI alum Dr. Richard Besser of ABC News. NPLI faculty member Dr. Eric Goralnick helps narrate a look at the Ebola preparations at Boston’s Brigham & Women’s Hospital.
