Apprio employees Kristi Ledbetter, Shane Gardner, Charlie Williams and Tommy Buzan receive certificates of appreciation for their efforts in preparing healthcare workers to work with Ebola Treatment Units.
Preparing Healthcare Professionals to Work in Ebola Treatment Units in Africa
To aid those with the Ebola virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) sends healthcare workers to the front lines of the epidemic in Africa. Since the disease is spread through contact with blood and bodily fluids, prior to going into the field, the CDC prepares healthcare workers on how to work in Ebola Treatment Units. Apprio Inc. is part of this preparation, supporting a training effort that began in October 2014 and lasted through March 2015.
The CDC recently recognized the Apprio Team for excellence in training, calling out Apprio team members Tommy Buzan, Shane Gardner, Kathy Johnston, Kristi Ledbetter, Sandra Pagan and Charlie Williams.
The CDC trains medical workers at FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP), located in Anniston, Alabama, before they are deployed to Africa to work in Ebola Treatment Units. Apprio played an instrumental role in providing logistical support to allow personnel from CDC to attend training at CDP entitled “Preparing Healthcare Workers to Work in Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs) in Africa.”
