Family medicine residents participated as panelists for student presentations at O'Connell HS in the Mission District of San Francisco. Student teams each researched an infectious disease (Ebola, Hanta, influenza) and prepared a presentation on its history, containment strategies, symptoms and pathological processes, and community outreach plans for public health prevention. Team members adopted the perspectives of pathologists, epidemiologists, health care providers (MD/Nurse), and community health workers.
