Lecture: Containing Ebola: Global health, politics, and human rights in stopping the Ebola epidemic

Colorado College Chair and Associate Professor of Political Science Andrew Price-Smith will speak on the expanding Ebola epidemic and its impact on global health, international governance, human rights and national security.
