The University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine has been named one of three institutions that will make up the National Ebola Training and Education Center. UNMC Chancellor Dr. Jeffrey Gold says they are pleased to accept this designation as a national leader in the world’s fight against Ebola and other infectious diseases.
Emory University in Atlanta and Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City were also selected.
The three institutions will share a $12-million federal grant from the U-S Department of Health and Human Services to train other health care providers in all 50 states on strategies to manage Ebola and other emerging infectious diseases. UNMC will receive $5.1-million.
