We have a great show for you this week which covers all of the controversies and questions you have come to expect from The Word on Medicine: will there be another surge when the weather turns cooler, when can those over the age of 70 venture into the community, and is it safe to go to the church or synagogue.

We will also have a special segment devoted to Kathy’s House – a wonderful place to stay for our patients and learn how they are caring for those from out-of-town in the era of COVIOD-19. Drs.

COVID-19 #7

The Word on Medicine brings you another special edition devoted to COVID-19. We have a great program, starting with a COVID-19 update from our medical experts, Drs. Ledeboer, Wainaina, and Graham. Then we will review recent trends in Milwaukee, discuss when a vaccine may be available, and specifically address the controversy of going back to school (and college) with Drs. Cassidy, Sanchez, Graham and Frank. Dr. Mike Frank will also touch on the challenges for professional athletes as sports make an attempt to return - at least to TV viewing. We will conclude with a reminder that Opening Day for Major League Baseball is today! To put this in perspective, we have Mr. Baseball himself, your own Bob Uecker, joining us to talk about life in the COVID era and how things look for the Crew.
