Researchers Under the Scope

Oct 11, 2020

The way people perceive threats in a pandemic affects the spread of Covid-19, according to social epidemiologist Nazeem Muhajarine. 


Since he was a boy, he's studied the way government interventions really work, from the perspective of citizens who have to live with them.


In this episode, Muhajarine explains why he left medical school for a career in public health research, why politicians' words and actions can change infection rates, and why he strives to treat every person he meets in his research with dignity.
