NH Doctor returns home soon from epicenter of Ebola outbreak


New Hampshire's Deputy State Epidemiologist and doctor at Dartmouth Hitchcock is at the epicenter of the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone. She's helping in the fight against the deadly virus.

Doctor Elizabeth Talbot has been working with the International Medical Corps in Sierra Leone since mid-November.

In that time she's helped to open two Ebola clinics. One is up and running now. Another is set to open Saturday.

Dr. Talbot is training clinicians who work with Ebola patients teaching them how to better protect themselves.

Dr. Talbot's set to return home to New Hampshire on December 17th, and says she will keep her family's safety and the safety of her community in mind when she comes home. As far as a quarantine goes, she said she would do whatever the state tells me to do.
