About The Show

The pandemic reminds us that when it comes to health, there’s so much more out there to understand—like how new genetic discoveries could change our relationship with our genes or how climate change could accelerate the next pandemic. In season 3, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, physician and former city health commissioner, talks to doctors, scientists, culture makers, and policy leaders to dissect how science, policy, and culture shape health. New episodes of America Dissected every Tuesday.
