Patient Monique Meating gets a closer look at a photo of health care worker Jerry Kollie on his PPE (personal protective equipment) at ELWA II’s Ebola treatment unit (ETU) in Monrovia, Liberia on Sunday, March 1, 2015. Meating is suspected of having Ebola and is waiting on her test results. Meating saw Kollie’s photo, smiled and said that she recognized him from town.<br />
The photo of Kollie was created by Occidental College professor Mary Beth Heffernan as part of her PPE Portrait Project, which involves photographing health care workers and making disposable, adhesive prints of their images which are then placed on the worker’s PPE.<br />
ELWA II has one of the largest numbers of Ebola patients in Liberia at the moment and was the first ETU to open in Monrovia, Liberia’s capital city.<br />
