Today we talk about Global Health, which is really just Public Health but for the entire world! We discuss the creation of the World Health Organization, the differences between words like endemic/epidemic/pandemic, and learn about some famous (infamous?) pandemics throughout history. Also, we interview Andrew Romaner about his time working with the Carter Center on the Guinea Worm Eradication Program. Also, Linsey talks some more about the X-Files.
