Super Heroes Battling Ebola


Frontline experiences in a West African Treatment Unit

Joey Scaletta will share his frontline experiences in a West African Ebola Treatment Unit Monday June 22, 7-8:30 p.m. at the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library’s Marvin Auditorium. Joey volunteered with Partners in Health earlier this year. Partners in Health is a non-profit organization working in West Africa to address the needs of patients infected with the Ebola virus and preventing the spread of disease.

Slide2Armed with knowledge of the infection control practices in the U.S. healthcare system, Scaletta not only provided direct patient care for infected patients, he also helped to establish practical strategies for infection control in an Ebola Treatment Unit in Sierra Leone. He’ll delve into these experiences during an eye-opening presentation.

Joey Scaletta works in Topeka, Kansas as the Healthcare-Associated Infections Director of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
