Dr. Kristin Held, the president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons rejoins the show this week for a candid conversation about the damage to medical practice, patient care, as well as the larger economy caused by the fear narrative promulgated by the initial reported data-sets from the Chinese Communist Party and the Director General of the World Health Organization – who is not a physician and has a history of downplaying three severe cholera outbreaks in 2006, 2009, and 2011.
Dr. Held is dedicated to putting the patient first, preserving the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship, and advancing the noble profession of medicine. She is a fierce advocate of the Hippocratic Oath, i.e. the do no harm principle that has been a first-principle of medicine dating back to to circa AD 275.
