The 2014 Emergency Ebola Epidemic in Sierra Leone: Ambulances as Death Traps and How We Got to Zero

Join us at Science on Tap as Dr. Hannah Lawman shares her experiences working in Sierra Leone in the emergency Ebola epidemic. She will share how ambulances and the response teams that they carried were rejected by many communities and what The Ambulance Project did to change it and improve access to Ebola treatment.

Dr. Hannah Lawman received her PhD in Clinical Community Psychology at the University of South Carolina and specialized in health behavior change and methodology. While working as an Epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Lawman was part of the 2014-2015 Emergency Ebola Response in West Africa. She worked in Sierra Leone on the Health Promotion Team and lead a project to demystify ambulances and reduce fear around accessing treatment for Ebola. Upon returning she founded Welbodi Sierra Leone, a 501©3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls in Sierra Leone in the district she worked in to finish their high school education by providing comprehensive scholarships.
