Hedgeye will be hosting a specialist call with Dr. Jeffrey Shaman on Tuesday, October 28th at 1:00pm EDT to learn more about the real and perceived risks of the current ebola virus situation.
Dr. Shaman will provide his informed perspective to better understand recent developments, including the global response in Africa, the handling of confirmed cases in the U.S., as well as what we should expect in the immediate future.
We will discuss Dr. Shaman's research on forecasting and containment of the ongoing ebola outbreak in Africa, the probability of a significant outbreak outside of Africa, and the timeline for bringing the disease under control, which Dr. Shaman estimates will take another 12 to 18 months.
