Follow the Data Podcast: The Enduring Pandemic: COVID-19 and the Future of American Public Health

We’re almost two years into the pandemic, which has posed challenges to a range of public health issues, from the overdose crisis to mental health.

This week’s podcast episode was adapted from a Bloomberg Philanthropies virtual conversation which took place on February 10, 2022 about the future of American public health, featuring WHO Global Ambassador for Noncommunicable Diseases and Injuries Mike Bloomberg along with Dr. Vivek Murthy, the U.S. Surgeon General, and Dr. Kelly Henning, who leads Bloomberg Philanthropies’ public health program.

They discuss how to address health misinformation, how the pandemic has exacerbated the opioid and mental health crises, and what’s keeping the Surgeon General optimistic about the future of public health.
