Why aren’t we more scared of measles? (Alternative version)





With Professor Brian Zikmund-Fisher

How do you decide whether you should be worried about communicable diseases like measles, polio, or HPV? University of Michigan’s Professor Brian Zikmund-Fisher returns to Risk Bites to explain the “availability heuristic” – the way we all use our memory and feelings to inform our risk perceptions about infectious diseases.

(Same video as the main version, different sound track! See the original here: https://youtu.be/X9udphYRJMw)
