Rogers, Emerson


Emerson J. Rogers, program director for the Men's Health Screening Program (MHSP) in Liberia, gives a bit of personal history, then descries his experiences during the Ebola epidemic and subsequent period. Rogers closed his clinical practice during the epidemic and became clinical coordinator for the JFK Medical Center Ebola treatment unit. He then served as master trainer for a healthcare worker education initiative, Keep Safe to Keep Serving, and then joined MHSP, an effort to test Ebola survivors' semen for virus persistence.
