SLCL Presents Dr. Leana Wen

Wednesday, July 28, 7pm CST
St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, and Left Bank Books present Dr. Leana Wen, "Lifelines: A Doctor’s Journey in the Fight for Public Health."
Video premiere: July 28, 7:00 p.m. on www.facebook.com/STLCoLibrary
From CNN medical analyst Leana Wen, MD, “Lifelines” is an insider's account of public health’s crucial role and an inspiring story of her journey from struggling immigrant to being one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People. Dr. Wen has lived on the front lines of public health, leading the fight against the opioid epidemic, outbreaks of infectious disease, maternal and infant mortality, and COVID-19 disinformation. Dr. Wen lays bare the lifesaving work of public health and its innovative approach to social ills, such as treating gun violence as a contagious disease and racism as a threat to health. Ultimately, she insists, it is public health that ensures citizens are not robbed of decades of life, and that where children live does not determine whether they live.
