Dr. Mark McClellan is the director of the Robert J Margolis Center for Health Policy and a professor of Business, Medicine and Health Policy at Duke University. He was previously with the Brookings Institution and the commissioner of the United States Food and Drug Administration under President George W. Bush. Today, he will discuss the COVID-19 pandemic and how health agencies are responding the crisis.
Dr. McClellan discusses the innovation currently happening in both the public and private sectors to create affordable and accessible COVID screening tests, which he claims is the quickest way out of the crisis. He also notes that his center at Duke is working with public health officials to share reliable information about the development of vaccines, a need that he says stems from the American public’s distrust of government leadership.
