You can hear a clip from this episode on our BEST OF SEASON ONE file, available as a free podcast download on iTunes.
In this episode, we enjoyed a riveting discussion about global health concerns, as well as the elaborate connections between medicine and nutrition. Our feature guest was Dr. Diklar Makola (left), a gastroenterologist in Dayton, Ohio, who has extensive experience in practicing medicine both in the United States and abroad. Dr. Makola also has a PhD in nutrition, and his perspectives on medicine and global health have been further enhanced by his research work, which he also discussed on the program.
In the second half of the show, we were joined by Matias Iberico and Jonathan Slaughter, who are second-year medical students at the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University, in the Class of 2011. Matias and Jonathan are also co-chairs of the School of Medicine’s ‘Global Health Initiative.’ Both have had valuable experience working in medical settings abroad, and they were able to share their insights regarding the importance of global health care efforts.
