Blood(y) health with Dr Joel McCay

This week we’re making a deep dive into hematology, the medical speciality of blood disorders. A simple blood test can open up a world of valuable information about what’s going on inside our bodies, and hematologist Dr. Joel McCay guides us through some of the most common problems to look out for and how it's a first step in knowing and not guessing.

Blood also contains many key players of our immune system, and inevitably the conversation gravitates towards COVID-19 immune responses and antibody testing, as well as some other recent learnings from the pandemic.
