"Many people are unaware of the physical and mental consequences a viral infection can have on the body, if it is avoided and not properly taken care of," said Deepti Pahwa, Chief Innovation Officer of Contakt World and co-host of the podcast. "The first half of this episode highlights Kemoy Campbell who watched his long-distance running career end right before his eyes due to a viral infection and his advice to athletes on how to take care of themselves during the pandemic."
"The second part of our episode highlights the constant information and misinformation surrounding the pandemic that clouds our social media channels and plays a significant impact on people's knowledge about public health," said Justin Beck, Founder and CEO of Contakt World. "This is a major issue in today's society that needs to be addressed, and we were honored to discuss this topic with Dr. Seema Yasmin, pinpointing how to restore trust from past and current instances of medical racism and how to be mindful of the information we choose to share on our individual platforms."

"Contakt World: Truth in Health" Podcast
"Who's right? And furthermore, who decides what is right? It's the fundamental question of our times, not only in terms of ethics, but also systems of information. In this age of COVID, misinformation and social media, there's a lot to contend with. So, how do we navigate it? Join our hosts Justin Beck, Catherine Delcin and Deepti Pahwa, as they speak with Dr. Seema Yasmin, an Emmy Award-winning journalist, poet, medical doctor and author who discusses the direct effects of Facebook on public health. We also hear from Kemoy Campbell, a retired Olympic distance runner from Jamaica, who educates athletes on the importance of heart health, and how to properly listen to your body, especially in the age of COVID. As always, we'll talk about how to help our local health departments - and encourage innovation and technology integration - all while remaining empathetic, plus keeping an eye toward health equity for all."
