Knox College Podcast Series: A Truly Trying Time in Public Health

Students in Jonah Rubin and Andy Hertel's Health Studies Internship course were given a unique assignment this year.

Unable to do their regular in-person internships, students instead interviewed local health professionals about their experiences serving on the front lines of the pandemic. Rubin shared six of those interviews with Tri States Public Radio.

All podcasts were produced and edited by Dr. Jonah S. Rubin and the Knox College Health Studies Program.
