A Colleague with Ebola

July 28, 2014

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.

    It will never cease to amaze me that, after all of the years in school, the sacrifice and debt, that a young man and his family will answer a higher call to put all of that knowledge to work to benefit and heal those in such dire need. If that isn’t humbling in a selfish world, I don’t know what is.

    Thank you so much for letting me know about this wonderful young doctor. He has been in my prayers since I heard about his contracting this horrible disease.
