In this episode, the hosts are joined by Julie Gerberding, a senior executive at Merck, a longstanding friend, and generous contributor to CSIS’s work. Congress was highly active the week of June 22 examining across several committees the hard lessons of the past months of the coronavirus pandemic in America and what needs to happen right now -- as the outbreak explodes in the west and south -- and looking into the future. Julie testified at two full Senate hearings. What were the key messages she sought to hammer home to policymakers? What is the status of debate in Congress over where we need to move next?
Executive Vice President & Chief Patient Officer at Merck and Co., and co-Chair of the CSIS Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security. She was formerly the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (2002 – 2009).
