Episode 9 - Mother’s Day BONUS Episode!

May 12, 2017

Happy Mother's Day to everyone out there! Did you know public health has a field devoted to moms and their babies? It's called maternal and child health. We take for granted the medical advances in pregnancy and childbirth over the past century, but in many areas of the world, we still have a lot of work to do. Also, we have some surprise guests.

Intro Episode

March 9, 2017

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.
