Health & Veritas: Health Economics (Ep. 9)

On the Health & Veritas podcast, Yale physician-professors Howard Forman and Harlan Krumholz talk about the latest news and ideas in healthcare and seek out the truth amid the noise. In the latest episode, they are joined by Jason Abaluck, a health economist at Yale SOM. They discuss a massive study co-authored by Abaluck that showed that masks reduce COVID infections in a community setting.
