Today we are going to talk about high science and basic health. Improving our health requires both.
First, high science. Dr. Daniel Leffler, MD MS of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School will be joining us to talk about celiac disease and about a new study that is investigating how effective a new investigational drug is at improving damage to the lining of the colon and reducing celiac symptoms.

After that we are going to expand the digestive disease discussion with Gastroenterolgy Update, where I will tell you some of the latest and greatest news from the world of digestive disease and answer your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS. You can also tweet me a question at @doctorira
Physicians should represent a broad swath of who we are as Americans. Join me as I speak with Dr. Kameron Matthews, MD, JD, as we talk about the 5th 'Tour for Diversity in Medicine,' an initiative that brings pre-med enrichment activities to minority high school and undergraduates across the United States.
We will end the show, as usual, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all...anything that you forgot to ask your doctor ask me! Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
