School is back. Children are sad. Parents are not. And, if you are a doctor, the sick season starts.
Dr. Alexandra Levitt, PhD is the author of "Deadly Outbreaks: How Medical Detectives Save Lives Threatened by Killer Pandemics, Exotic Viruses, and Drug Resistant Parasites" will be joining us to talk about her new book.
