This week, hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter speak with Dr. Susmita Pati, Chief Medical Program Advisor for the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, founded by the legendary actor and PBS science show host who felt science and health professionals needed to learn better communication skills.
