Surviving a Pandemic: Dr. Leana Wen
Play • 16 min

“Public health saved your life today, you just don’t know it,” That was the original title Dr. Leana Wen gave the book she wrote about her career as the Health Commissioner in Baltimore, Maryland. But when Covid 19 hit, Wen rewrote it and turned it into a personal story about public health, visible only when it is underfunded, ignored and laid bare by the devastation of Covid 19. On the next Healthy You: Surviving a Pandemic host Frank Sesno talks to Dr. Leana Wen about her book, “Lifelines: A Doctor’s Journey in the Fight for Public Health.”
