New Hampshire’s deputy state epidemiologist is traveling to Liberia to help in the fight against Ebola in West Africa.

Dr. Elizabeth Talbot will train clinical teams in protecting against infection from the virus.

She also works an infectious disease doctor at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Governor Maggie Hassan says the Division of Public Health Services will manage Talbot’s reentry with three weeks of follow up upon returning to the Granite State.

Hassan praised Talbot’s willingness to help in the fight against Ebola, saying her training will help save lives.
