During the 2014–2015 Ebola epidemic in West Africa many social and cultural factors influenced both the spread of the virus and the attempts to stop its dissemination. This talk will explore the role of behavioral science in the emergency Ebola epidemic and ways to help Sierra Leone recover from the disease’s devastating impact.

She worked with an interdisciplinary team to combat fears about seeking treatment, especially related to ambulances. She currently directs research at the Philadelphia Department of Public Health in the Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention.
