Renaissance Adult Day Services is answering a call from the public and offering free classes on Ebola at each of their three locations in Brooklyn and the Bronx. Designed by Eileen Parenti, RNC, BSN, Renaissance Executive Director, and Lena Hymson, RN BA MS MSN, Director of Patient Services at Renaissance, the seminars will explain what Ebola is, how it spreads, what treatments are available as well as help people to understand the risk of exposure, the signs and symptoms and how to protect themselves.

When asked why the program was created, Parenti said, “We are an active part of each of the communities we’re in, and we hear from our patients and the community members that people are frightened about this disease. Because education and training is the best way for people to feel more secure, with our background, we can share valuable information to help people understand the disease and want to be a resource and support our community with our knowledge.”
