Should I Be Worried About Monkeypox? + COVID & Polio updates (With Rob Citronberg, MD)

Should I Be Worried About Monkeypox? + COVID & Polio updates (With Rob Citronberg, MD)

Another outbreak?!? What fresh hell is this?? Can’t we all just get a break?

Before we sink into the depths of despair, let’s consult with our friendly neighborhood infectious disease expert, Dr. Rob Citronberg. As Advocate Aurora Health’s executive medical director of infectious disease, Dr. Citronberg has been providing evidence based, valid, helpful information about disease spread and prevention for decades. Julie calls him “Chicago’s Fauci”- although we all think he could do a MUCH better job throwing out a first pitch 🙂

Listen in as he talks Jeremy and Julie out of complete virus burnout. We discuss who may be at highest risk for contracting monkeypox, and who is eligible for vaccination. We also reflect on what we have (and haven’t) learned from the COVID-19 pandemic as a society, and Dr. Citronberg explains some failures and potential opportunities for improvement for the CDC.

Come join us in the conversation, just don’t forget to wash your hands 😉
