Monday, January 10, 2022 - In March 2021, a busy seamstress in North Dakota received a call from a friend asking her if she would be interested in submitting a ribbon skirt design for incoming Secretary Of the Interior, Deb Haaland. Agnes Woodward found the thought of her design being a part of such an historic day for Indian Country rather overwhelming. Little did she realize that she was about to make history for herself. Alicia Hegland-Thorpe shares her story. ~~~ Dr. William Haseltine has ‘grave concerns’ about Merck’s oral COVID drug Molnupiravir, which was recently given emergency use authorization from the FDA.

We share an excerpt of his comments from the Conversations on Health Care podcast.
