Ebola: Information for the Public

Pathologists are physicians who examine body fluids, cells, and tissues to identify and diagnose disease, including infectious diseases, such as Ebola.

Pathologists also serve as medical laboratory directors and work with public health officials to alert them of an infectious disease outbreak to help safeguard the public’s safety. Learn more about the pathologist’s role in testing for Ebola.
