As Election Day finally hits America, so does the pandemic. Voter turnout is soaring–and so are COVID cases. It’s the scariest Halloween in recent history. But we’ve got no tricks in this episode–it’s all treats. We’ve got useful, thoughtful, candid analysis and recommendations from one of the brightest public health minds in America.
Dr. Vin Gupta (@VinGuptaMD) is a helper and a patriot. He’s the guy you wish was your personal doctor right now. He’s a public health physician, an Air Force officer, a professor, an NBC News analyst, and true voice of reason. Since the pandemic hit, Dr. Gupta has emerged as a true superstar that Americans of all backgrounds respect and trust. He’s young, brilliant and working every day on the front lines of the pandemic on a range of critical fronts from seeing patients, to appearing on national TV, to guiding tech giant Amazon.
Dr Gupta has spent 15 years working worldwide to improve public health for organizations including the US Centers for Disease Control, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the Harvard Global Health Institute, the World Health Organization, and the Pentagon’s Center for Global Health Engagement. He’s a Harvard-trained lung specialist, a trusted advisor and contributor to national and international media outlets and a contributor to the New York Times and CNN New Day. He’s also a Major in the United States Air Force Reserve Medical Corps, where he serves a deployable critical care aerospace physician with the 446th Aeromedical Staging Squadron based at Joint-Base Lewis McChord in Washington State. In this role, Dr. Gupta has assisted with bolstering the emergency health crisis response capabilities of partner nations in Africa as part of the US State Department’s African Peacekeeping Rapid Response Partnership (“A-Prep”) initiative. He’s also the Principal Scientist at Amazon, where he provides clinical and strategic leadership to the company’s internal and external COVID-19 response work, including overseeing the funding of clinical trials, expanding its work in public health through community-based initiatives, and ensuring the implementation of evidenced-based workplace health and safety protocols.
