Debunking pandemic myths
Have you heard about that treatment that completely cures COVID-19? Well, it doesn’t exist. Misinformation about COVID-19 seems to spread as fast as the virus itself and the flow of falsehood is making it even more difficult to curb the pandemic. False claims swirl around the safety of potential vaccines, the usefulness of masks, the effectiveness of treatments, the accuracy of COVID-19 case counts and even around the origin of the virus. A recent study by researchers at the University of Delaware found that a third of respondents agreed with false statements such as “Big Pharma is encouraging the spread of coronavirus to make money.” People who embrace these conspiracy theories were also less likely to say they would get vaccinated or follow public health recommendations. Disinformation flourishes in situations where demand for information is high, but the supply of credible information is low. How can you trust what you hear and what you read? What role does social media play in spreading the rumors? Every Monday at 9 a.m., MPR News host Kerri Miller delves into the science and research of COVID-19. This Monday listeners shared the questionable information they’re hearing and put rumors to the test with a health educator and an infectious disease doctor who know their facts. Guests: * Dr. Nahid Bhadelia is an associate professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and an infectious disease physician at Boston Medical Center. * Lindsey Leininger is a public health educator at “Dear Pandemic” and a professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

Financial tips that resident physicians need to know
"These strategies on how the rich get richer do not only apply to the wealthy. These same opportunities and strategies are open to us as well. If we want to accumulate wealth, or simply keep more of the money we currently have without paying a large portion in taxes, then we should consider following the strategies above. Think about what you are good at or what you like doing and consider a business you could start, product you could create/sell, or service you can render then file it as an LLC (or other business entity). Before you know it, you’ve “started your own business” and can now take advantage of tax rules that allow you to write off many of the expenses you already paid for. If you feel you pay too much in taxes, then meet with a tax advisor or talk to an experienced professional about ways you can lower your taxes. If you’d like to have your net worth increase in value so you can start living the life you’ve always envisioned, then talk to a financial planner and start investing. If you don’t have a financial planner or don’t think you can afford one, then start by putting money aside in your job’s 401(k) plan and investing the money in that account into a low-cost index mutual fund. (If you’re an advanced investor, then start learning about real estate and other active/passive investments.)" Altelisha Taylor is a family medicine resident and can be reached at Career Money Moves. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "3 ways the wealthy increase their net worth." (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2020/08/3-ways-the-wealthy-increase-their-net-worth.html) This episode is sponsored by Elsevier Health (https://www.us.elsevierhealth.com/).
