Dr. Margaret Tandoh, an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, recently returned home from treating patients with Ebola in Liberia.

The Ebola epidemic in West Africa finally seems to be slowing down. But still, the disease has already killed nearly 9,000 people in West Africa alone. Dr. Margaret Tandoh spent seven weeks treating patients in her native Liberia, where she set up an Ebola treatment center.

In late January, she returned to her day job as an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. She spoke with VPR about her experiences treating patients with the deadly disease in Liberia.
