HHS launches Ebola training program

The Department of Health and Human Services has launched a National Ebola Training and Education Center to ensure American providers can safely identify, treat and transport any future patients infected with the deadly virus. The Center is a combined effort of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and HHS' Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR), and three academic institutions. Atlanta's Emory University, New York's Bellevue Hospital Center and Omaha, Nebraska's University of Nebraska Medical Center will receive $12 million for the initiative from ASPR and CDC over the next five years. Announcement
