Forum Aims To Ease Concerns As N.H. Doctor Returns From Ebola-Stricken Country

State health officials hope a forum next week will help ease concerns of residents worried about a local doctor's return from working in an Ebola-stricken country in West Africa.

The panel discussion Monday evening at Kearsarge Regional High School will include state Public Health Director Jose Montero. Residents will also have a chance to ask questions about the disease.

Dr. Elizabeth Talbot, a Dartmouth professor who lives in New London, has been working in Liberia, training doctors treating Ebola patients.

Upon returning, Talbot has said she plans to self-quarantine at her home.

Still, Kearsarge Superintendent Jerry Frew says in a post on the district website that the forum was scheduled after a number of parents expressed concern.

Frew will also take part in the forum, which starts at 6.
