And now, it’s the Midday Healthwatch.  Tom's guest is Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and visiting professor at George Washington University. She’s also a former Health Commissioner of the city of Baltimore, and a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, as well as a commentator for CNN and a columnist for the Washington Post. Her latest book is called Lifelines: A Doctor's Journey in the Fight for Public Health.

Dr. Leana Wen joins us on Zoom to discuss the new COVID boosters, masking in schools, new worries about E.coli contamination in West Baltimore's water, and other public health issues. And as always, she answers your questions.
