WTOP to Host Town Hall with Dr. Anthony Fauci on Ebola

WTOP on Monday, October 20 at 10am will host a town hall with Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Dr. Jesse Goodman, Georgetown University Medical Center professor of medicine, on the topic of Ebola.

WTOP midday anchors Bruce Alan and Debra Feinstein will host the one-hour forum at the Newseum. The four will explore the medical profession and government’s response to Ebola, proper protocols for response at medical facilities, and media coverage.

Questions to Fauci and Goodman can be submitted online at wtop.com, at the station’s Facebook page, or on Twitter tagged with #WTOP.

While the event quickly reached capacity for general audience, audio will be streamed online at wtop.com and the Newseum will host a video stream. C-SPAN also plans to carry the conversation.
