Public health is all around us, yet difficult to describe. Most people have little-to-no idea what we do (including our parents). This podcast is a heartfelt – and probably half-baked – attempt to understand public health through history, humor, and stories from professionals in the field. Our mission is to create a cozy corner for public health nerds to listen and laugh with us as we try to describe a field that is constantly changing and adapting. Welcome to Viral.
