New Jersey activists urged not to let myths and fear drive response to Ebola crisis
New Jersey activists including a coalition of Rutgers students, faculty, alumni and New Brunswick community members, braved the inclement weather on Saturday, October 11th to make the G.O.Y.A Project’s 2014 “Walk for Literacy and Health” a success.
Keynote speaker on the health dimension was Dr. Mafudia Suaray, who grew up in Sierra Leone, West Africa. She started her college education at the country’s only medical school in the shadows of Sierra Leone’s brutal 11 year civil war. Under threat of their lives, her family was forced to flee Sierra Leone in 1997. Nearly two decades later she now specializes in Family Medicine and Community Health and works as an Instructor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
