The PHE aspect of your life is interesting Gregory. What's your role? Have
you learned anything about preps for the new respiratory infection and the
possibility of an Ebola outbreak (considering international air travel, it
seems like we're going to see at least a few cases?)?

On a related note, I just saw/signed a petition for One.org urging action
on medical help to Ebola stricken countries. If anyone is interested, email
me and I'll forward. Not sure I could forward to the list.

Stay well everyone

Kathleen
