National Public Radio

Nurse Nina Pham tells the Dallas Morning News that while she is Ebola free, she suffers residual effects from contracting the disease from a patient she cared for last fall at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

Pham’s patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, was the first person in the United States diagnosed with Ebola. Duncan contracted Ebola in Liberia and later traveled to Dallas.

Pham, 26, was the first person to contract Ebola on U.S. soil.
