The Consequences of Isolation ~ Take a Prehistoric Road Trip

Monday, June 8, 2020 - Loneliness and isolation can have dramatic consequences on our mental and physical health. Dr. Vivek Murthy is a former US Surgeon General, a former vice admiral in the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and the founder of Doctors for America. He’s out with a new book, “Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World.” He visits with Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter, hosts of the Conversations on Health Care podcast, about the emotional impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. ~~~ YouTube Educator Emily Graslie is the host of Prehistoric Road Trip, a new PBS series premiering on Wednesday the 17th.
