Healthwatch With Dr. Leana Wen: "We Are Sacrificing Other People For Our Own Interests."

May 6, 2020

Dr. Leana Wen

On today’s Midday Healthwatch with Dr. Leana Wen:  When can the state and the country reopen safely?   What have we learned about the virus so far, and are researchers getting closer to a treatment?   

Dr. Leana Wen is a visiting professor of health policy and management at the Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University, and a distinguished fellow at the Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity.

Heard on today’s show: The primary next month will be conducted largely by mail due to the coronavirus pandemic. All mail in ballots must be postmarked on or before June 2nd. 

For those who aren’t able to vote by mail, there will be a few in-person voting centers. When you get your ballot, ignore the fact that it says April 28th. The date of the primary has been moved to June 2.
