On Friday’s “Behind the Headlines,” guests on St. Louis on the Air discussed the St. Louis area’s high rankings for STDs and some of the underpinnings behind the high rates.

  • Brad Stone, Medical Director, St. Louis STD/HIV Prevention Training Center; Associate Professor of Sociocultural Anthropology at Washington University
  • Maheen Bokhari, Program Manager, Communicable Disease Division of the St. Louis Health Department
  • Faisal Khan, Director, St. Louis County Health Department
