We talk a lot about heroes in today’s culture. In fact, the word has lost a little bit of its luster. But the world lost a hero a few weeks ago…someone whose name you may not know. Let’s just say if you woke up this morning and you didn’t have smallpox, thank Dr. D.A. Henderson.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll dip into the archives and replay my interview with Dr. Henderson who passed away last month at the age of 87.

We’ll also hear commentary from the head of the New York teachers union about ways to solve the ongoing teacher shortage.

And we’ll spend an academic minute opening up a window to your brain.
