Health News Digest: Celebrities and Public Health

We discuss the latest in health news. This week, A Bit of Culture panellist, Lee Chwi Lynn joins Tina Carmillia to discuss pop culture and public health. In light of Jimmy Kimmel's heartfelt plea for accessible health care after sharing about his newborn son's heart defect, we debate if public figures like himself, Lady Gaga and the British royals help or hurt public health.
