Monday, July 16th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!

Having survived July 13th, I am psyched for the week ahead.  Starting tomorrow, when we have a pretty amazing show planned featuring the Olympics and the human microbiome!  What could be better!

We start with the Microbiome.  Dr. Emmanuel Mongodin of the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Maryland.  Dr. Mongodin will be talking to us about the microbiome, metagenomics, and a new journal, Microbiome, that will be devoited to these subjects.

If you've ever wanted to know about the interaction between human bacteria and health, you're not going to want to miss this!

After this, we'll have Gastroenterology Update, where I will answer your questions on any digestive disease topic: whether its heartburn, your pancreas, or even the liver, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

The Olympics are coming.  Two weeks of the world's greatest athletes competing against each other.  We always hear about the guys who try to cheat with performance enhancing drugs.  But what about an athlete with a medical problem.  How do you balance "performance enhancing" with "necessary."  Joining me is Carrie Johnson, US Olympic kayaker and Crohn's disease patient.  Also joining us is Dr. GaryWadler, an internist with special knowledge of the use of drugs in sports.

We will end the show 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!
