Monday, April 21st on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio
Emerging infection and extinction. Yup, a super happy show on Monday!
Starting with extinction. Elizabeth Kolbert, a New Yorker staff writer, will be joining us to talk about her book The Sixth Extinction. Find out about how there have been five mass extinctions and how a sixth one may be looming.
After this we will have Gastroenterology update, where I will tell you the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease and answer your questions on all things digestive. Topic of the day: the normal human microbiome!
A few weeks ago, my office became abnormally busy with the Flu. Usually, by the time spring rolls around, we are done with the flu and ready to start check up season. This flu seems to nasty as well, with lots of people requiring antibiotics after being "superinfected" with bacteria. Join me and NYU Professor and Doctor Radio Medical Director Doctor Marc Siegel as we talk about the Flu B epidemic!
We will end the show, as usual, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all...anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me! Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
