NMU professors scheduled to speak at the event are: Madison Ngafeeson of business, a Cameroon native who will share the perspective of someone from a west African country; Yuba Gautam of health and human performance, who will share his expertise in community health education; and Tom Isaacson of communication and performance studies, who will discuss the media and public relations aspects of the Ebola epidemic.
