Current Episode: Dr. Céline Gounder
Dr. Céline Gounder, is a clinical assistant professor at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, and a practicing HIV/infectious diseases specialist.
Dr. Gounder, who has written for numerous publications, is a CNN medical analyst and frequent expert guest on CNN, the BBC, and many other networks. She is also the host and producer of American Diagnosis, a podcast on health and social justice, and Epidemic, a podcast about the COVID-19 pandemic.
In early 2015, she spent two months volunteering as an Ebola aid worker in Guinea, and interviews she conducted there became the basis of Dying to Talk, a feature-length documentary she made about the 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic in that country.
Dr. Gounder served on President Biden's and Vice President Harris's Transition Covid-19 Advisory Board from November 9, 2020 through January 20, 2021, and it is our honor to welcome her to today’s show.
