Don’t miss the #CDCGrandRounds LIVE webcast today at 1:00pm EST. Join the discussion on global eradication of polio. Over the past 25 years, the number of polio cases reported worldwide has fallen from an estimated 350,000 in 1988 to only 407 in 2013—a decline of more than 99%, but there remains work to be done.

Fatima, her father, and her husband, Fred, are a family of responders – they’ve all been deployed to West Africa for the Ebola response. Inspired by their parents and grandfather, Fatima and Fred’s girls hope to one day follow in their family’s footsteps at CDC. Learn more about Fred and Fatima’s roles in the response and how they handle leaving family during their deployments. http://1.usa.gov/1LHeefW

Helicopter rides, treks through the jungle and tree stump bridges are just the geographic barriers CDC public health professionals had to overcome in their response to rural outbreaks of ‪#‎Ebola‬ in Liberia. Once they reached a remote community – the real challenge began. http://1.usa.gov/180GfkB

Polio is a crippling and potentially deadly infectious disease. The virus spreads from person to person and can invade an infected person’s spinal cord, causing life-long paralysis or in rare instances, death. The eradication of polio remains an important priority for the CDC and many of its global partners. Follow @CDC_eHealth on Twitter and participate in the next session of #CDCGrandRounds, Tuesday, February 17th at 1pm EST. http://1.usa.gov/1yCCZ5C
