Liberia’s Ambassador to Washington, Mr. Jeremiah C. Sulunteh, is expected to speak at the Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts (MA), USA, on Thursday, January 29.
Ambassador Sulunteh, who will be the first speaker to deliver the formal opening address at a three-day symposium, will speak on the Challenges of the Ebola Outbreak in Liberia.
Following the Ambassador will be the Health Minister of Burkina Faso, Mr. Lene Sebgo, who, too, will deliver another opening statement.
The three-day conference on the theme, ”Global Response to Emerging Infections”, will be held in the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, Harvard Medical School.
The Ambassador might have a lot to say as Liberia is one of the three nations hardest hit by the deadly Ebola virus disease, which is now on the wane in Liberia.
During the height of the Ebola crisis last year, his mission mobilized some of the biggest relief aids sent to Liberia to cater for patients and health workers.
The three-day event, according to the organizers, will bring together top scholars and boots-on-the-ground practitioners in the fields of crisis leadership, epidemiology, humanitarian, and disaster medicine for an up-to-date symposium on emerging infections and threats to global health.
Amb. Sulunteh will also use the occasion to visit UMASS in Worcester, MA for a tour and hopes to meet there with a large Liberian population.
