What would you prescribe to heal the country?

It has been a busy week for me and I was not able to conduct any of my usual Five Minutes in Healthcare interviews.

Instead, my video this week shares a quick overview of what I see happening in the U.S., and in the world. In case you haven't noticed, there is a lot going on.

The pandemic has taken the lives of over 200,000 Americans and infected over eight million. Globally, COVID-19 has taken over a million lives.

Unemployment in the U.S. is high and a divided Congress struggles to reach a stimulus deal. Meanwhile we've got a presidential election in a few days, and people are more strongly divided on the candidates than any other time I can remember.

One thing is certain in 2020: Everyone has an opinion. We would like to hear yours. How far away do you think we are from getting back to normal? What do you think the country needs to move ahead?
