When the Music Goes Viral
Musician, physician, and health-education comedian Dr. Zubin Damania, a.k.a. "ZDoggMD," recently released a parody music video set to the tune of The Kinks' "Lola" about the Ebola epidemic, the institutional confusion, and the media frenzy surrounding it:
Damania worked as a physician at Stanford Hospital for over 10 before launching his ZDoggMD brand, aimed at entertaining while education about health and science issues. He argues that it's time for his organization to dispel misconceptions about Ebola and ridicule the public response to it "before someone else does it even more tastelessly."
