Re-Thinking the Ebola Crisis (Nelson/Castlegar)

Join the BC Council for International Cooperation and the West Kootenay Global Awareness Network as we come together to explore and re-think ongoing challenges of the West Africa Ebola crisis within a global citizenship perspective.
Questions addressed will include a brief overview of what’s happened so far, what’s worked and what hasn’t, and finally, in a world where we are striving to share the challenges of our global realities, how can we begin thinking in terms of ‘we’ rather than ‘us’ vs. ‘them’, and what would that look like in the context of the current Ebola crisis?

DR. SHELINA MUSAJI, MD.
