She also talks about vaccines, reactions, complications, and vaccine recommendations. Vaccines are never 100% effective, and the shingles virus is one you don’t want to get!

“The pain associated with shingles can be very severe and may last weeks, months, or even years after it begins.” -National Foundation for Infectious Diseases

Dr. Seitz holds a BA in Biology from Earlham College in Richmond, IN. She earned her medical degree cum laude and continued her residency training at Meharry Medical College. Dr. Seitz completed a fellowship in Geriatrics at Vanderbilt University and is board-certified in both Family Medicine and Geriatrics.

We discussed her new thing, a recipe from Mina Stone’s Cooking for Artists.
