CONCORD, N.H. – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced today that Dr. Elizabeth Talbot, Deputy State Epidemiologist, will be going to Liberia at the end of next week.

Dr. Talbot, who is also a physician with the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, will be in Liberia for four weeks and will play a leading role in training clinical teams of physicians, nurses and other staff to conduct Ebola control activities. She will work with International Medical Corps, a non-governmental organization. Just as in New Hampshire, her primary goal is to protect those on the frontline of the Ebola epidemic. Upon her return to New Hampshire, her colleagues at the Division of Public Health Services will conduct her post-arrival monitoring.

"We are very proud of Dr. Talbot," said Dr. José T. Montero, Director of the Division of Public Health Services. "She exemplifies the dedication of the many public health and medical professionals and organizations working to end this serious medical crisis in West Africa. She will take with her our best wishes and we will await her return."

"I am very proud of the preparedness work we are doing in New Hampshire," said Dr. Talbot. "The timing is right and I am grateful for this opportunity to contribute to the effort."
