Medical Students Need Toilet Classes, Too
Updated: Aug 9, 2018
Today I went to Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai to teach first year medical students about infectious diseases and the role of toilets in history and current events. This was part of a week-long series for them on Global Health. It was great to give them an introduction to infectious diseases, and they were fascinated to see the links between the presence of sanitation in a community affected by these diseases. Half of the class was a learning exercise that included a trivia game - it was great to see the students light up and absorb the material in the game so quickly!
