Get involved to support Ebola prevention and treatment
The Dr. Sam Brisbane Fund for Support of JFK Memorial Medical Center was established to raise funds to provide support for disaster risk reduction and response efforts at the JFK Memorial Medical Center in Monrovia, Liberia. The fund was established by a group of colleagues who have worked at JFK Memorial Medical Center through programs at Indiana University in honor of their friend and colleague, Dr. Sam Brisbane, who recently passed away from ebola virus disease.
For those interested in supporting relief efforts, also consider a donation to organization such as Doctors Without Borders, the CDC Foundation, Red Cross, Medical Teams International, and Samaritan's Purse.
