After the presentation, Mangla will answer questions about the virus.

The presentation is for all Alamo College students, faculty and staff.

“My final goal is to make sure that when I am done, people have significantly less fear of Ebola,” Mangla said.

Mangla has seen different cases of Ebola in countries such as South Africa, Swaziland and Lesotho.
