Episode 46 - Epidemiology and Pharmacy

June 30, 2020

Hey everyone! Linsey and Quinn are back with a two-part episode featuring a discussion with Dr. Erika Fant, clinical pharmacist, and Dr. Janice Zgibor, pharmacist and epidemiologist. We talk COVID, pharmacy, contact tracing, and more!

 

(This episode was originally recorded a few weeks ago but we held off on posting it to allow others to focus on the Black Lives Matter movement, but now that COVID is spiking again, we thought it would be a good time to get back in your ears.) 

 

Thanks for listening!

Linsey and Quinn hop on Skype again to discuss the ongoing coronavirus crisis, compare figures from around the world, and contemplate what it means that some states are opening up while others remain closed. It gets weird.

We're back from a hiatus to bring you an episode about, you guessed it, COVID-19 or Novel Coronavirus. It only took a global pandemic for us to get our butts in gear and record again! In this episode, we talk about the virus, the public health response, and how you can help #FlattenTheCurve (and what the hell that means). Hopefully, we still have some listeners, so for those of you who are ride or die, thanks!

Episode 41 - Blood Donation, Transfusion, and LGBTQIA+ Populations

June 30, 2019

Greetings and happy summer!

Today we have an episode about the history of blood donation and transfusions as it pertains to public health, helping people recover from injuries and illness, and why some laws regarding who can donate are still out of date for certain populations, especially the LGBTQIA+ community.

Here is the link Linsey referenced regarding the FDA’s request for public comment. The period to submit comments ended in 2016 (we were incorrect in the podcast episode) but we’ll look to see if there’s anything new!

Thank you to everyone who came and saw us at the 2019 Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE) Annual Conference in Salt Lake City! We didn’t do a live show per-se, but rather a roundtable presentation about how podcasts can be a useful tool for communicating to a variety of audiences. We’ll share that info sometime, but for now, sit back and enjoy a story about a pioneer woman who not only was an accomplished doctor and public health champion but also the first female state senator in the U.S. – and an interesting person too!

Public Health & Propaganda

March 27, 2019

Hey everyone! This is a rebroadcast of an episode we aired early in our run. We think the topic of propaganda is relevant still and wanted to re-release just the discussion portion of that episode. Be back in your feeds with a new episode soon!
