Video chat features Princeton graduate aiding Ebola response

Raphael Frankfurter, a 2013 Princeton graduate and executive director of the nonprofit group Wellbody Alliance, participated in a live video chat at noon EDT Monday, Aug. 18, to discuss the group's response to the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone. 

Frankfurter was joined by João Biehl, the Susan Dod Brown Professor of Anthropology and co-director of Princeton's Program in Global Health and Health Policy.

Along with providing an update on the situation in Sierra Leone, Frankfurter and Biehl explored how lessons from medical anthropology can help improve response to such outbreaks by emphasizing empathy and respect for those affected.
