Life on the Line: Ebola Warriors
About This Episode
This is the dramatic story of two hospitals: one fighting to keep the Ebola virus inside, and the other to keep it out. Follow Dr. Gillian Seton, a physician in Liberia, who is fighting to keep the epidemic out of her hospital in order to keep its doors open to patients who don’t have the deadly virus. A few hours away in Sierra Leone, meet James, a local healthcare worker who is risking his life to treat Ebola patients in the Red Zone at Waterloo SDA Hospital. And watch how one of his patients is trying to obtain community acceptance as an Ebola survivor.
The desire to overcome is at the core of everyone. Especially those fighting disease, facing a natural disaster, coping with a disability or battling mental illness. Narrated by award-winning journalist and writer Lisa Ling, the series Life on the Line is an inspiring look into the resilience of humankind.
