But Dr. Leanne Forman, Leanne Forman, M.D., associate professor of clinical medicine at NYMC, said that's a myth. “When changes like that happen, you don’t catch things like the cold,” she said. “That’s really just because people are staying inside in the winter and you’re more likely to catch a virus or pick up bacteria.”
