Episode 11: Sex, Drugs, & Epidemiology


Today on the show, we’re joined in the home studio by Dr. Keith Sabin. Keith got his undergraduate degree in International Environmental Studies at Rutgers University. After a detour in East Asian Studies at Hebrew University, he got his Master’s in Limnology (which is the study of fresh water bodies of water) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He also got a Master’s of Public Health in Epidemiology at Columbia University. He then got his PhD in International Health-Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He has since worked at the CDC and WHO as senior epidemiologist, and is currently Senior Advisor in Epidemiology at UNAIDS. We really loved this interview! We got to hear about New York in the late ‘70s, HIV from a global perspective, and why public health workers and medical doctors aren’t always on the same wavelength. We hope you like it!
