Lifelines AudioBook Summary
This program is read by the author.
From medical expert Leana Wen, MD, Lifelines is an insider’s account of public health and its crucial role – from opioid addiction to global pandemic – and an inspiring story of her journey from struggling immigrant to being one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People.
“Public health saved your life today – you just don’t know it”, is a phrase that Dr. Leana Wen likes to use. You don’t know it because good public health is invisible. It becomes visible only in its absence, when it is underfunded and ignored, a bitter truth laid bare as never before by the devastation of COVID-19.
