Dr. Rochelle Walensky is the 19th Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Prior to leading the CDC, she served as Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Walensky was on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic and conducted research on vaccine delivery and strategies to reach underserved communities. She is also an influential scholar whose pioneering research has helped advance the national and global response to HIV/AIDS.

We are honored to have her on the show today, where she’ll be sharing the latest on the Delta variant, how our pandemic response is shifting, and where the CDC is headed in the years to come beyond Covid-19.
