Dallas physicians answered the public’s questions about Ebola through a Twitter chat under the hashtag #AskDCMS on Tuesday. More than 2.5 million people tuned in to discuss and learn about the disease that has killed a Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital patient and infected two of the nurses who cared for him. Tonight, Dallas physicians again will answer your Ebola questions and separate fact from fiction.
The #FactsNotFear Town Hall Meeting will take place at Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Pkwy., Dallas, at 6:30pm in the neighborhood where the second nurse diagnosed with Ebola lives. It is open to anyone.
The physician panel includes:
- Todd Pollock, MD, plastic surgeon and Dallas County Medical Society President
- John Carlo, MD, chief executive officer of AIDS Arms and former medical director of Dallas County Health and Human Services
- Robert Haley, MD, professor of Internal Medicine and director of the Division of Epidemiology at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center
- Richard Besser, MD, ABC News chief health and medical editor
News 8’s John McCaa will moderate the event. Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, the leader of Dallas’ emergency response to Ebola, will be there as well.
