Science fair winner and Stanford student Jack Andraka will study the anthropology of Ebola in Sierra Leone

Jack Andraka’s current work at Sanford is described on this website about the 2018 Truman Scholars (his entry is third on the list). 
The article seems to imply that Jack will visit Sierra Leone this summer as he studies the relationship between the anthropology of the native people and the 2014 Ebola outbreak, which led to some edgy situations in the US when some doctors returned and later contracted Ebola and had to be treated in intensive care in places like Emory (CDC) in Atlanta, or NIH in Bethesda. 
Apparently an effective vaccine against Ebola has existed since 2016, according to Wikipedia
