Outbreak News Today

A syphilis primer

Syphilis numbers are growing around the US and around the world as more and more states and countries release data.  In this interview from Apr. 2016, I speak to the Director of Communications for the American Sexual Health Association/National Cervical Cancer Coalition, Fred Wyand to discuss the syphilis situation.

We go over the ABC’s of syphilis, why the number of cases are increasing, the reported link to apps like Tinder and Grinder and much more.
