A Second Opinion with Senator Bill Frist, M.D.


Jul 5, 2021

Today we’re sharing with you a special episode.  I recently sat down with Andy Slavitt for Book TV’s After Words program, where we discussed in detail Andy’s new book: Preventable: The Inside Story of How Leadership Failures, Politics, and Selfishness Doomed the U.S. Coronavirus Response.

Andy Slavitt is uniquely qualified to tell this story.  As the former head of Medicare and Medicaid and one of our nation’s most recognizable and influential voices in healthcare, Andy was working with key players inside and outside of the government throughout the pandemic.  Most recently, he served in the Biden Administration as the lead White House advisor on the country's Covid-19 response.

You’ll want to hear his incredible insights, the stories he has from the frontlines of the response, and what we need to do to prevent unnecessary loss of life in future health crises.
