“Lifelines: A Doctor’s Journey in the Fight for Public Health” is a new book by emergency physician and George Washington University medical professor Leana Wen, chronicling her inspiring story – from immigrating to the U.S. as a young child to becoming Baltimore’s health commissioner, where she spearheaded programs to combat the opioid epidemic, reduce maternal and infant mortality and treat violence and racism as public health issues. Wen, who is known as one of the most recognizable and well-respected medical experts in the country, returns to Washington Post Live on Tuesday, July 27 at 11:00am ET to talk with health policy reporter Paige Winfield Cunningham about her new book and vision for public health at this critical time in our nation’s health history.
