Public Health is Far More Than Just COVID: A Conversation with Dr. Leana Wen

Deep State Radio

The vast majority of gains in life expectancy during the past century have been due not to miracle cures but to public health measures like sanitation. The key to their success was empowering and trusting our public health officials. We live in a time when an organized minority is this country is seeking to discredit them and when much of our public health mission--like care for addiction or psychosis--is left to the police and other agencies ill suited to the care these problems require. Dr. Leana Wen is a noted physician, commentator and former Public Health Commissioner of Baltimore. She has written an important new book on the role of public health in our society based on her own, inspiring life journey. We discuss that book, "Lifelines: A Doctor's Journey in the Fight for Public Health", with her in this special episode of the podcast. Join us.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/deepstateradio.

Dr. Vin Gupta and Dr. Leana Wen

Hell & High Water with John Heilemann

In which John Heilemann talks with Dr. Vin Gupta and Dr. Leana Wen, two public health rising stars who have emerged as influential and indispensable voices on Covid-19 in the past year. Heilemann, Gupta, and Wen discuss the Biden administration’s response to the pandemic and whether its success in exceeding its vaccination goals portends victory in the fight against Covid; the controversies over the Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccines in America and Europe, respectively; the factors behind vaccine hesitancy and what measures might be taken to overcome it; and the imperative of restarting the economy and why vaccine passports may be a big part of the solution. Drs. Gupta and Wen also share their fears about the future, especially on the international front, where new variants of the virus are springing up all the time; their views about whether Covid will ever be eradicated and what the new normal might look like; and what they would do if granted god-like powers to implement any regime they wished to combat the pandemic.
