We just received confirmation that Dr. Kent Brantly has accepted to speak and participate at the Global Missions Experience 2015. He will be at the event Sept 17-18, will address all participants, and will also meet with students interested in doing medical missions work.
Brantly was one of two Americans transported back to the United States from West Africa in August after contracting the Ebola virus. He began a two-year term in October 2013 working as medical director for Samaritan's Purse Ebola Consolidated Case Management Center in Monrovia, Liberia. Brantly was released from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta Aug. 21 after blood tests came back negative for the virus. Since then, he has had numerous media appearances and speaking engagements.
