Jennifer Kasten, MD, MSc, MSc is a practicing pediatric pathologist with degrees in medicine from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, infectious disease epidemiology (CID) from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, a year’s postgraduate work in the mathematical modeling of infectious disease at Oxford University, and a master’s in the history of medicine and science, also from Oxford University. That’s a lot of school. Given her education, and pithy sense of humor, she created a Facebook page to clarify COVID-related issues, first for friends and family, and then some posts went viral and she has turned into a phenomenon. If you don’t follow her, you should.
We recorded two episodes. The first was updates on COVID – what we’ve leaned in the 11 months since last we spoke. We discussed the new variants, and how this affects R naught, long-term sequelae, long hauler syndrome, and which countries handled the virus best and why. Somehow we even get into Federalism. If you like this episode, make sure to check out the next one where we discuss the vaccines.
Also, I am now part of a network. The Doctor Podcast Network, where all of the podcasts cater to a physician audience. For instance, Dr. Kate Mangona has a podcast called Medicine Marriage and Money. Check it out!
