Many of us learned how to wash our hands at a very early age and have relearned the importance and proper technique periodically along the way. Research suggests that many people may not be doing it correctly. Dr. Greg Poland a Professor of Medicine in Infectious Disease at the Mayo Clinic joins us for National Hand Washing Awareness Week to discuss some tips and tricks to share with your patients to ensure they’re reaching the full potential of this life-saving technique. He’ll also answer questions like does it matter if the water is hot? Is handwashing with soap more effective than anti-bacterial gel or lotions? And, when should we be washing our hands?

60 - Santa's Salmonella
For a special holiday treat, we’re going to explore two tales of salmonella disease detectives -- the first about Mary Mallon (“Typhoid Mary”) and the birth of the genre; and the second about a mysterious salmonella outbreak at Massachusetts General Hospital solved with the assistance of a very jolly patient. Along the way, we’ll talk about clinical epidemiology, the long-lasting influence of Berton Roueché, and the joys of being an internist!
