Talk show to focus on case of surgeon who died of AIDS

December 18, 1990|By Eric Siegel

WJHU-FM (88.1) will broadcast a special 90-minute call-in show beginning at 7 p.m. tonight on the issues raised by the case of Dr. Rudy Almarez, the Johns Hopkins surgeon who died last month of AIDS.

Titled "The Health Care Profession and AIDS," the program will feature Dr. Hamilton Moses III, vice president for medical affairs at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Dr. Samuel Westrick, a private physician specializing in the treatment of AIDS.

Hopkins spokesman Steve Libowitz said WJHU -- the public radio station owned by Johns Hopkins University -- also was trying to line up a medical ethicist to appear on the show.

The 1 1/2 -hour program will be moderated by John Stupak, a locally based syndicated talk show host. Listeners may call 338-9548.

The special will pre-empt WJHU's rebroadcast of National Public Radio's "All Things Considered."
