***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

DERBY, CT (Nov. 6, 2014) – To help the community understand the Ebola virus outbreak, Griffin Hospital will host a free community forum on Thursday, Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. in the hospital’s Meditation and Learning Center, 130 Division Street, Derby.

Hosted by Griffin Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Frederick Browne and the hospital’s Infectious Diseases Chief Dr. Howard L.

Two imported cases, including one death, and two locally acquired cases in healthcare workers have been reported in the United States to date. The Centers for Disease Control and healthcare facilities across the country have been taking precautions to prevent further spread of Ebola in the United States.
