During this week’s airing of the Outbreak News This Week Radio Show, I interviewed two interesting guests on the topics of Chagas disease and hantavirus.

In the first segment, Hutchinson Distinguished Professor of  Biological Sciences at Loyola University New Orleans, Patricia Dorn, PhD joined me to talk about Chagas disease, her parasitology classes trip to Guatemala and research done at  chagasecohealth.com

In the second segment, Mark Waterbury, PhD (materials science) joined me to discuss his wife’s recovery and his dealings with local health authorities in King County.

In addition, as is being outlined in HantaSite.comMark discusses “hantavirus hotspots” in the area and a most interesting theory on how his wife and others may have contracted Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS)–via the Cabin Air Systems of automobiles.

The Outbreak News This Week Radio Show, the first and only radio program dedicated to infectious disease and health news and information, airs every Sunday at 8 pm ET in the Tampa Bay area on AM 1380 The Biz and online at http://1380thebiz.com/
