Infectious Disease Conversation on WPSU, Live with Andrew

Earlier this month, if you had turned on your radio around 8 p.m., Andrew Read and Jose Stoute would have come through the speakers with a live conversation on infectious diseases. The program aired on WPSU-FM, the local NPR station, and on WPSU-TV, as part of a series called Conversations LIVE, which has frequent public health-related conversations with experts, and which welcomes the public to phone in questions during the show for the host experts to provide answers.

For those of us that missed the live show, the link to the taped show is here. Watching  CIDD members communicate some of what we research to the public in this type of live conversation format is valuable and I think science needs more public outreach in these forms. Communication drives science forward and helps scientific findings integrate into common parlance, good for both halves in the conversation.
