Emerging Issues Research: Ebola and the Food System

Friday, October 2, 2015 AT 10:00AM-11:00AM CT / 11:00AM-12:00PM ET

The ongoing outbreak of Ebola in West Africa is the largest in history. A sustained outbreak of this magnitude has the potential to create new opportunities for pathways of human transmission previously thought to be unrealistic, including pathways involving the food system. This webinar will present findings from research performed by the Food Protection and Defense Institute and collaborators to rapidly evaluate the risk of Ebola transmission in the United States via three routes originating in West Africa: food commodities, imported wildlife, and illegal bushmeat.
