Dr. Urmila Sharma, Manager, Infection Prevention, Norfolk General Hospital
Dr. Urmila Sharma
On August 22 ,2016, Dr. Sharma spoke to the Club about her participation with the World Health Organization battling the Ebola crisis in Liberia, East Africa. Working with local health professionals, the infection prevention specialist concentrated on keeping the medical professionals alive, reducing the transmission of the disease and setting up safe treatment and disposal procedures. Many of the African nations treating Ebola suffered substantial fatalities among their medical communities. While listening to her, you couldn't help recognize her attention to detail and the danger she was exposed to. Norfolk General Hospital is fortunate to have her on staff.
