With a change in leadership at Cleveland's city hall - comes plenty of other changes at the tops of city organizations.

One of those is the appointment of MetroHealth's Dr. David Margolius to head up the city's Department of Public Health.

Dr. Margolius comes from the MetroHealth System - where he was previously serving as division director of internal medicine.

It's certain to be a challenging position - with all of us still navigating the pandemic, some continuing distrust in the medical community, and persistent racial health inequities across the city.

We'll also discuss the divide over Roe versus Wade and how public health officials will be wading into those waters.

And even the news over the monkey pox virus and if there should be concern over it.

Today we will spend the first part of the program talking about the city's public health needs with the new Director.

Stick around as later in the show - we keep it viral - but in a different sense of the word. Our Gabriel Kramer speaks with Joey Kinsley - better known as Sir Yacht. The young man who's garnered internet fame through content creation.

Guests: 

- David Margolius, M.D, Director, Cleveland Department of Public Health

- Sarah Kepple, Vice President, Lakewood City Council

- Joe Kinsley, Content Creator, "Sir Yacht"

- Gabriel Kramer, Reporter, Ideastream Public Media
