Doctor in the House: How Much Do You Know About Your Health?

On today’s show, consultant urologist Dr George Lee is joined by Komathi Perialathan, a health education officer from the Institute for Health Behavioural Research, at the Ministry of Health to dive deeper into the issue of health literacy.
