Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

What are the most significant public health errors of the pandemic? Our guests are doctors who have pushed back against public health groupthink, challenging colleagues to stop the refrain of "Stay home, save lives." They feel that public health has failed to protect the most vulnerable during this pandemic, and they have ideas for how to shift course.

Guests include:

  • Dr. Stefan Baral, physician epidemiologist and professor in the department of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health 
  • Dr. Monica Gandhi, professor of medicine and associate chief of the Division of HIV, Infectious Diseases, and Global Medicine at UCSF/San Francisco General Hospital, and director of the UCSF Center for AIDS Research 
  • Dr. Vinay Prasad, hematologist-oncologist and professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of California San Francisco, and author of several books including, most recently, "Malignant"
