Medicine with DR EMEKA

Season 2, Ep. 2

The fabulous Dr Emeka Okorocha joins Jasmine today to discuss all things healthcare and medicine. Dr Emeka gamely answers Jasmine's pop quiz of Classical diagnoses to see if he can tell what the patient was suffering from, as well as managing to keep a straight face while she reveals some of the ancient cures. Hippocrates of course is discussed, whose oath Doctors even now have to commit to before they start to practise.
