The Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) has allocated $12 million in funds over the next 5 years for a new National Ebola Training and Education Center (http://1.usa.gov/1dxrLug). The Center’s co-leaders—Emory University in Atlanta, University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, and Bellevue Hospital Center in New York City—will receive the funding to develop and teach courses in caring for patients with Ebola and other serious infectious diseases based on evidence-based best practices. The training will be offered to state health departments and health care facilities.
