Health Care Infrastructure, Global Response Needed to Fight Ebola, Daemen Expert Panel Says

Health Care Infrastructure, Global Response Needed to Fight Ebola, Daemen Expert Panel Says

A strong public health infrastructure and international aid are crucial to containing the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, a panel of experts said at a discussion held last week at Daemen College.

“The appropriate infrastructure and control strategy to contain this disease is not in place where the outbreak is at its worst in West Africa,” said Erie County Health Commissioner Dr. Gale Burstein. “The level of global response will determine how quickly the disease can be kept from spreading or stopped and we must make sure the intensive medical care required reaches these patients.”

A capacity crowd turned out for Daemen’s timely Ebola panel discussion, which also included Dr. Joseph Sahr Sankoh, Daemen associate professor of political science and African affairs, and Anthony Saysay, a native Liberian.

Federal Court Arguments in Forcucci Case


BUFFALO, NY - What started as a school board matter played out in federal court today. A former Hamburg school board member wants to force that board to reconsider their vote to oust her from office.

Attorneys for the Hamburg School District were back before Judge Richard Arcara for oral arguments.
