SFAF Podcast #25 - Dr. Lisa Sterman on MRSA staph infection in the SF gay community

In this episode, Dr. Lisa Sterman discusses MRSA staph infection in the San Francisco gay community. Though MRSA has been around for years, a recent study in the journal The Annals of Internal Medicine has framed it in a new light.  What should everyone know about MRSA?  Are gay men more susceptible to infection?  What's sex got to do with it?
