In the next episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Dr. Peter Lu and Dr. Jason Silverman talk to Dr. Ben Gold, our incoming NASPGHAN President.  We talk about Helicobacter pylori, including controversies related to testing and treatment.  We also talk about his past life as a DJ and how spinning records prepared him for a career in academic medicine.



In this episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Dr. Jenn Lee and Dr. Jason Silverman talk to Dr. Karen Murray, our current NASPGHAN President and Chair of Pediatrics at the Cleveland Clinic. We talk about hepatitis C, including screening and its evolving treatment. We also talk about her career, her thoughts on work-life balance, and her advice for young people in the field, particularly young women.



Hosts Dr. Jenn Lee and Dr. Peter Lu talk constipation controversies with Dr. Carlo Di Lorenzo.  Do we really need to do rectal exams?  When should we get x-rays?  Is PEG3350 safe?  Do milk and cheese really cause constipation?  We answer all these questions and more.  As always, the discussion, views, and recommendations in this podcast are the sole responsibility of the hosts and guests and are subject to change over time with advances in the field.
