Welcome to The Not Old Better Show.  I’m Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode #475.

As part of our Smithsonian Associates Healthy Living series, we’ve got two great interviews, back to back.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First up is Dr. Anthony Fauci.  As head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci knows his way around the intricacies of complicated viruses.

Part 2 of this interview is with Actor Alan Alda, host of the Clear+Vivid podcast and co-founder of the Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, knows his way around sharing tough scientific topics in clear and engaging ways. Together, they are a perfect pairing to parse the intricacies of the virus that has held us in sway since March.

Join me first with Dr. Fauci, and then stay tuned for part 2 with Alan Alda, and join both of them for an evening of thoughtful, informative discussion on the topic gripping the country at Smithsonian Associates Sept 23, 2020. There’s also an opportunity for a Q&A session after the conversation.

 

So how can public health officials gain the trust of Americans who are skeptical of interventions like masks to fight the coronavirus effectively? Dr. Anthony Fauci is on the line now. He is the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the NIH and a member of President Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force.

 

My thanks to Dr. Anthony Fauci for his work, and willingness to join us today.  My thank, as well, to the wonderful Smithsonian team for all they do to support the show.  My thanks to you, our wonderful Not Old Better Show audience.  Remember, stay safe everyone, practice smart social distancing, and Talk About Better.  The Not Old Better Show.  Thanks, everybody.
