Dr. Leana Wen: A Doctor Who Listens
Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency physician, public health champion, and visiting professor at George Washington University. She served as President and CEO of Planned Parenthood from 2018 to 2019. Her tenure and her departure highlight a philosophical divide that goes beyond just one organization, but across the entire country. She asks, "Can we put aside partisan differences to do what is best for the people we serve?"
Dr. Wen describes to Rose how her driving mission is to serve both the patient and community at every level - whether in the ER, as a mom to young children, daughter to a sick parent, or as Baltimore's Health Commissioner fighting the opioid epidemic.
