As Ebola spread throughout West Africa this year, the disease was a real concern for one Adams Central alum who was planning a humanitarian trip to the area.
Brianna Knott, a 2008 Adams Central graduate who is now beginning her second year of medical school at the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine in North Carolina, spent a month this summer in the Sierra Leon village of Mattru Jong. The missions trip through the Christian Medical Association of Sierra Leon was June 4 through July 4.
Knott said Ebola was a concern from day one.
"We had to change our plans immediately when we got there," she said. "We had planned to go to a village in a different part of the country but they did have confirmed Ebola cases."
