LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An American doctor who recovered after contracting the Ebola virus while treating patients in Liberia will speak at a Louisville church next month.

Dr. Kent Brantly will appear at a missions health conference at Southeast Christian Church.

The conference is expected to attract thousands of medical professionals, missionaries and medical students to the church’s campus. It begins Nov. 6.

The Louisville conference will include five breakout sessions that address Ebola.

Brantly made a full recovery this summer at Emory Hospital in Atlanta. He made headlines again this week when he gave plasma to a Dallas nurse who contracted the virus. Doctors say antibodies in the blood of a survivor may help a patient fight off the germ.
