ABOUT VIRAL

Viral is a public health podcast for both public health nerds and the general public hosted by Linsey Grove and Quinn Lundquist.  Public health consists of too many topics and professionals to name–but we’re going to try to cover it all.  From baby bottle tooth decay to social justice, we will discuss the historical context, cultural relevance, and current connections to each topic while interviewing our colleagues in the field.  You don’t have to work in public health to appreciate its quirky, omniscient existence.  Welcome to Viral.

He currently works on a community health grant through the Florida Department of Health. He is a history nerd, has two dogs and a hedgehog, and spends his free time drinking too much coffee while listening to Tom Waits.

Linsey, MPH, CPH, CHES is a social marketing and public health consultant.  She has worked in design and public health for over 7 years and is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Public Health at the University of South Florida.  She is obsessed with science, great design, and public health communication.  When she is not rock climbing, she enjoys reading, advocating for comprehensive sex education, and taking pictures of her cats.
