Episode 14: Catching up on COVID
This one's all about COVID-19! New studies show promising results for mixing and matching doses of different two-dose vaccines. Countries benefitting from the COVAX Initiative vaccine distribution are starting to run out of vaccines, while over in America, demand for the vaccine is falling even though supply is still plentiful. Finally, the Delta variant continues to prove it is fitter and faster than its predecessor variants, causing the WHO to label it a "variant of concern." Check out our Notion page!

Episode 8: Vaccination Race, Medicare Changes, Hate Crimes
States used different strategies to distribute vaccines, which were successful? Medicare made changes to surgery classifications, and now some patients may need to pay more. Finally, the AAPI community has experienced heightened hate and racism since the start of COVID-19 in America, so does the Georgia shooting come as a surprise?

Episode 6: More Vaccines, Fewer Mask Mandates
J&J is out with a new COVID-19 vaccine and despite criticisms, experts have deemed it a solid option as a COVID-19 vaccine. As cases continue falling, more states are dropping the mask mandate, joining the 11 states who never had a mask mandate. Our take? This is NOT the move.

Episode 5: Black History Month
As Black History Month draws to a close, we wanted to shed light on some historical injustices the US healthcare system has perpetuated against Black individuals. Black individuals have made huge contributions to medical and scientific research, yet they continue suffer disproportionately due to structural racism in the healthcare system and society. There is still a lot of change that must occur so it is important to keep these conversations going even beyond February.

Researchers are now beginning clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines in children. Different governors are rapidly declining in popularity among their constituents for the way they have handled COVID-19 in their state. And, ICYMI much of the continental US is currently experiencing severe winter storms. Winter Is Coming... well it's already here, and in Texas, particularly, it is wreaking havoc.

Episode 3: Masks, Mandates, Mental Health, Medical Breakthroughs
The CDC has spoken, and two masks are better than one. Will we soon need to show a negative COVID-19 test in order to board domestic flights? Children and adults alike are feeling the mental burden of this prolonged pandemic. And, scientists have found a potential treatment to help curb the obesity epidemic in America.
