Taking the Pulse (Health & Veritas Ep. 51)

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 this episode, they check in on new research and health issues in the news, including studies on colonoscopies and the timing of hypertension medication, the state of the monkeypox and polio outbreaks, and the wave of legislation restricting treatment of trans youth.
