American Univ advises returning students about Ebola and a global university

As students return to their universities this month, and as many leave the bubble of high school for the first time, health officials are offering lessons about globalization and public health.  

American University explains that it has students from around the world and scholars that travel the world, including West Africa.  It offers a basic explanation that Ebola is difficult to transmit, and a link to the relevant CDC web page.

American University’s Associate Professor Susan Shepler spent this summer in Ebola-affected Sierra Leone and Liberia.  A scholar on youth and conflict, she offers some advice about Ebola.
