The Monkeypox outbreak has caused the World Health Organization to label it a 'public health emergency of international concern.'

New York, California and Illinois have declared states of emergency over the virus and the CDC reports five cases have been confirmed in Idaho. We wanted to take a look at this disease and sort out the facts from the myths about Monkeypox.

Former CEO of St Luke's Health System and current member of Idaho's Coronavirus Task Force joined Idaho Matters to help us break this down.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
Hi! I’m Gemma Gaudette, the host of the award-winning show, Idaho Matters. During the day you’ll find me researching and writing about all the fascinating topics we tackle on our show. And of course, at noon, each weekday you’ll find me live behind the microphone as Idaho Matters airs.
