CDC I Told You So: Debunking Stuff with Dr. Lisa Richardson
HUGE show today with Dr. Lisa Richardson, Division Director, Cancer Prevention and Control at the CDC. As the first guest I’ve ever had on the show with a BS in Zoology, Lisa is the real deal. She’s down to earth, speaks “person” and “science” simultaneously, and has been a 25+-year first-hand witness to the staggering revolution and evolution of cancer care across these United States. In this rapid-fire “no stupid questions” episode, Lisa and I talk about everything from simulated humans, plummeting screenings, mRNA, and telehealth, to 1990s’-era patient activism, the rise of survivorship, cancer, and COVID — and the prospect of 2021 “Vaccine Parties” being the exact opposite of pox parties. Hilarity ensues. Enjoy the show.
