Reimagining Public Health in the Wake of COVID-19

August 25, 2020

In this episode of Managed Care Cast, we share a little bit of our forthcoming interview with Georges C. Benjamin, MD, executive director of the American Public Health Association, which will appear in the September issue of The American Journal of Managed Care®.

If there is any issue that has encapsulated the gravity of social determinants of health (SDOH) better than the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, you'd probably be hard pressed to find a public health official able to name one. On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we share a little bit of our interview with the head of the American Public Health Association, which will appear in the September issue of The American Journal of Managed Care®.

As schoolchildren, teachers, essential workers and others try to adjust to the changes wrought by this novel infectious disease this year, Georges C. Benjamin, MD, speaks about the "need to have a new societal compact for health."
