Monday, January 27th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio
Teenagers and the evolution of modern medicine. What do these two topics have in common? They are interesting, hard to understand (especially teenagers) and featured on this Monday's show.
Jill Grimes, MD will be joining us first to talk about those teenagers. We will talk about current teenagers and also about teenagers past: in other words, us. Find out about how some of the things we did then can come and haunt us now. And find out how you can try to help the next generation from being as dumb as some of us were.
Teenagers? Were a teenager? Stupidity? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
After that we will have Gastroenterology Update, where i will tell you some of the latest and greatest news from the world of digestive disease and answer your questions and tweets on all things digestive. Whether its heartburn, constipation, abdominal pain, or even the pancreas, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Medicine. We like to think of ourselves as physician-scientists and as a profession honor the memories of our greatest predecessors. We like to forget the hydropaths, phrenologists, blisterers, and vertebrae knockers. But some of these nineteenth century physicians practices laid the groundwork for some of the things we now recognize as extremely important to health: exercise, hygiene, and women's health. Join me and author Erica Janik as we talk about her new book: "Marketplace of the Marvelous: The Strange Origins of Modern Medicine."
We will end the show, as always, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me! Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
