Tallahassee, FL (WTXL) -- Students and faculty gathered at FAMU today for a seminar on the Ebola outbreak as a part of the university's Public Health Monthly Seminar Series.

The seminar covered the topic as well as historical facts about the disease, along with current and future developments in prevention and treatment.

Dr. Saleh Rahman led the talk and said the outbreak needs to be controlled soon.

"It's just the tip of the iceberg, and it's not to create panic, rather as a public health professional particularly in the global health field. We need to understand that this is more than what we are seeing even now, and it can even get worse."

Dr. Rahman's comments come just days after a man was diagnosed in Texas with the deadly disease.
