ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia is hosting a panel discussion on domestic and global issues linked to the spread of the Ebola virus.

University officials say the School of Law’s Dean Rusk Center for International Law and Policy is hosting the event Jan. 12 in Dean Rusk Hall at 12:30 p.m. The discussion is free and open to the public.

Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s public health law program Matthew Penn, Emory law professor Polly Price and UGA public health professor Phaedra Corso are included as panelists.

Organizers say the group will discuss the authority the federal government has in isolating and quarantining people who may have Ebola, the consent and privacy issues surrounding patients who are being treated, travel restrictions and more.
