A public health podcast produced by the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID), "Infectious Questions" connects those with infectious disease questions to those with the answers. Un balado sur la santé publique réalisé par le Centre de collaboration nationale des maladies infectieuses (CCNMI) et appelé « Infections en question » fait le lien entre les balados concernant les questions sur les maladies infectieuses et ceux qui offrent des réponses à ces questions.
 
The path to better health lies in our DNA. Our drive to discover, care, learn and share is in our DNA. It defines who we are, just as your DNA defines you. On Season 2, we're exploring trust, authenticity and inclusivity in the era of COVID-19 – as well as climate change, evolving ICU care, health equity, why hard conversations matter, and why the rise in young adult colon cancer rates means it's time to bust the stigma (and more!). New episodes drop every week starting Aug. 23. #ListenDNA
