Ebola is here

With the death of the Dr. Khan, the World's authority on Ebola, considerable knowledge on this virus has been lost. Dr. Khan has been credited with treating over 100 patients during this recent outbreak in West Africa.  

Brief History:Ebola was first recognized in 1976 via outbreaks in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Sudan. In fact, the virus was given the name "Ebola" from the infected animal remains that were scattered along DRC's Ebola river. Ebola is thought to be transmitted to humans via eating contaminated "bush-meat".

Kaweah Delta Helping to Make a Difference

The staff was literally shocked to view the large amount of medical supplies that were donated today.  Receiving these surgical and laparoscopic instruments are particularly appreciated due to the commitment of our organization to advance the use of laparoscopic techniques whenever feasible. In countries where there is an increased use of laparoscopic procedures, the potential for all the below have been witnessed:
*decreased hospital stays
*decreased complication from surgery 
*decreased infections
