Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency physician and public health professor at George Washington University. Wen speaks with Rev. Jim Wallis about the current state of the pandemic and its public health implications in the United States. She shares what she is hopeful for and her major concerns with trust and vaccine distribution.

“Building trust is not going to happen overnight,” Wen says. “We also, as the medical community, need to show that we are trustworthy. There are communities that have real historical reasons for distrusting the medical and scientific community.”
