I must pause a week in my continued quest to highlight waste and excess in the American healthcare system to focus on a more pressing issue.
Dr. Kent Brantly graduated from the JPS Family Medicine Residency Program 2 years ago after also completing our global/maternity care fellowship. He is the young man who contracted Ebola working in Monrovia, Liberia recently. He is an incredibly smart, hard-working, but humble human being. He was a true joy to work with every time I had the pleasure trying to teach him a few things.
For those of you so inclined, please pray for Dr. Brantly, his family, the other American woman who contracted the disease, and all other patients and families affected by the recent outbreak.
