OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The University of Nebraska Medical Center and affiliated Nebraska Medicine clinics have launched a free online public education course on Ebola.

The medical center’s chancellor Dr. Jeffrey Gold says it’s important the public has access to accurate and trustworthy information based on facts and scientific evidence.

The course explains Ebola in easy to understand terms including signs and symptoms, how it is spread and coping with stress. It also explains how to talk with children during infectious disease outbreaks.

The course is available at unmc.edu/ebola and soon will be available through the iTunes Store, and the iTunes University app for iPad and iPhone users.

The medical center houses the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit, one of just four in the nation where two Ebola patients have been successfully treated and released.
