NIAMS Staff Join in the Fight Against Ebola
The unprecedented Ebola epidemic in West Africa, which has claimed more than 11,000 lives, prompted many NIH physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and lab technicians to assist with the crisis both at home and abroad. Among them were NIAMS staffers Paul H. Plotz, MD; Cheryl Talar-Williams, MPH, PA-C; Alice Fike, NP; April Brundidge, BSN, RN; and Lorena Wilson, NP. Some, like Fike and Wilson, spent countless hours caring for the Ebola patients admitted to the NIH Clinical Center’s Special Clinical Studies Unit (SCSU) in Bethesda, Md. "Volunteering at the SCSU helped me gain an appreciation for those taking care of patients overseas, especially those working in high-risk areas with minimal resources and assistance," reflected Wilson.
