As family physicians, we are on the frontline — dealing with any health crisis that faces our patients and our nation. As fears about Ebola rise in the United States, we want you to be informed and ready to respond, whether to answer patients' questions or to detect an infected patient.

You can prevent further spread of this disease by being ready to detect a potential patient, protect yourself and others from exposure, and respond with appropriate patient care.
