This week’s show – How fast the world can change?

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Hello Everyone, It was just about 6 weeks ago that Thomas Duncan arrived in Dallas from W. Africa, and sent the U.S. into panic as the first Ebola patient on U.S. soil, Duncan died on October 8th.

The story is off the front pages, but the disease has not gone away in Africa, and there is still no cure. This Saturday N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts will welcome Dr. Michael Lemon, from the Wood County Health District to A Firm Foundation Radio show to discuss Ebola, and what it means to all of us here in N. W. Ohio.

Fortunately we have seen 5 patients with Ebola in the U.S. cured, but don’t let that give us all a false sense of security. It’s a big world, no it’s a small world, you can leave Bowling Green and in 16 hours you can be 1/2 way around the World.

Tune in this Saturday at 9:00 am. for this up-to-date, and timely discussion with Dr. Michael Lemon, and Rick and Jackie on A Firm Foundation on AM1470 WLQR and streamed live worldwide at also on I-Heart radio.
