In the Bubble: From the Frontlines

By Lemonada Media

Healthcare expert Andy Slavitt became America’s COVID dad by shepherding us through the pandemic. Now on short-term assignment in D.C. to fight the pandemic, he’s enlisted his respected friend Bob Wachter, M.D., Chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, to fill in for him. Dr. Bob will make house calls twice a week, bringing you his frontline view of the crisis, astute analysis, and reassuring bedside manner to answer your questions. Of course, the best scientists, policy leaders, and cultural icons will join Dr. Bob in the bubble, as will Lana Slavitt to help us keep tabs on Andy until he returns in June.
