[This is a previously released episode. Enjoy!]

The Zika virus caused quite the stir in the news a couple years ago.  It made few people feel sick…but its effects on developing fetuses was horrifying, causing multiple, profound birth defects.  It has receded from the news since then, but it’s effects are still being felt, especially in warmer  climates…including Corbin’s current home, Texas.  So what are the effects of Zika?  How is it prevented? Are there treatments available for its effects? And what do doctors do to support those affected?

Katee, you asleep? via Wikipedia

Lord knows Dave could use a good challenge once in a while. It is in this spirit, and certainly not that of causing him any embarrassment, that Katee challenges Dave to see if he knows his way around the abbreviations commonly used in obstetrics.  Can he do it? No, he cannot, but along the way he’ll learn a thing or two.  Later, Katee’s brain breaks down due to lack of sleep.
