Dr. Jerry Brown
Dean's Executive Leadership Series
Many around the world were shocked as we watched the Ebola crisis unfold. One man, Dr. Jerry Brown, watched too. He took action and stopped people from dying of Ebola. Through his work as medical director of the Eternal Love Winning Africa Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia, and in the face of skepticism and misunderstanding, he trained, taught and treated waves of people who came to his hospital. In December 2014, Brown was named person of the year by Time Magazine for his work fighting Ebola, which remains a threat but is no longer spreading at the rates once feared.
The efforts of Brown and his staff at Eternal Love Winning Africa Hospital saved hundreds of people who contracted the disease, and perhaps untold thousands who never got it because of the hospital's containment efforts. The ELWA Hospital is a health facility that SIM founded in 1965. It is located in the center of Paynesville City, Monrovia, Liberia, and caters to thousands of people. It is also an evangelical, interdenominational, and non-profit-making Christian primary-care ministry in the Republic of Liberia.
Brown is a remarkable servant leader and inspires other leaders to rise, have unshakeable courage, and to save lives. Learn about his global leadership experience and how to encourage leaders to take risks, go the extra mile, and lead through challenges.
