Gross Anatomy is hosted and created by Dr. Jason Cohen and Lauren Taylor. The purpose of the show is to address some of the medical questions Dr. Jason Cohen is asked by friends, family and often strangers with help from his non doctor co-host, Lauren Taylor. Lauren isn’t afraid to ask the questions people who didn’t go to medical school want to know.
