Safe Living in a Pandemic – Help!?

October 18, 2020

Why can't we fill in personal data and routine community COVID stats into a web form and calculate our risk of infection and mortality? Anyone working on it? Plus another dose of unintended consequences. A brief episode with Health Hats.

About the Show
Welcome to Health Hats, learning on the journey toward best health. I am Danny van Leeuwen, a two-legged, old, cisgender, white man with privilege, living in a food oasis, who can afford many hats and knows a little about a lot of healthcare and a lot about very little. Most people wear hats one at a time, but I wear them all at once. We will listen and learn about what it takes to adjust to life's realities in the awesome circus of healthcare. Let's make some sense of all this.
