In our new Old Mole segment on Public Health and the Pandemic, Jan Haaken and Patricia Kullberg follow the race for a coronavirus vaccine and some of the misleading claims circulating in the media, and they discuss ways of looking at infectious diseases from public health versus medical model perspectives.  Patricia Kullberg is a retired primary care physician and public health official who served for two decades as the medical director of Multnomah County Health Department. She has written for both the lay and academic press about various aspects of medicine and public health.
