Then, health experts are warning we may see a “twindemic” this year when flu season collides with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Learn how to protect yourself and your family.

Also in this episode, there is no question that social ties create positive health effects and something as simple as a community garden can be the catalyst that brings a building full of strangers together.
