Panel Discussion:
A panel discussing the legal issues related to Ebola in the U.S., featuring Prof. Polly Price, Emory School of Law; Jane Jordan, Deputy General Counsel/Chief Counsel for Health Affairs, Emory University; and Officer Ed Shoemaker, Emory University Police Force.

A top lawyer at Emory University said Tuesday that even with a decade of planning, the school's health care system had to deal with unexpected issues—including legal matters—as its campus hospital began treating Americans who contracted the Ebola virus in West Africa. Emory has treated three patients in a special isolation unit. Two have been released; a third remains at the hospital. 

Emory Law provides this video presentation of the panel discussion.

Event sponsored by the Emory Law Health Law Society and the Emory Public Health Ethics Club.
