Dr. Mike Osterholm has been a colleague and good friend for 20 years. He is not only a world-class epidemiologist, but also a fabulous communicator. You have probably seen him on TV during the past few months, but in this podcast he has the time to explain the details behind the headlines and sound bites. I will be listening to his weekly podcasts, and so should you.
We created A Good War to help inform you and your family during the epic battle against COVID-19. America’s top public health leaders will be among the contributors, along with heroes working on the frontlines.
I am Randy Larsen. For the past 25 years, I have held various executive positions, inside and outside of government, working with my fellow public health warriors to try and convince America’s leaders that public health preparedness is a critical element of national security.
I have been working with Jay Lavender since 2008. Jay is a writer and producer with a great passion for protecting America’s national security. For the past dozen years, we have been telling stories in film and print celebrating unsung heroes.
Jay and I are honored to be working with a world-class team to edit this site and produce the podcast, A Good War. Our mission is to help tell the inspiring stories of public health heroes—past and present—in the battles between the human race and infectious diseases.
Please reach out with ideas for posts or questions and share with everyone who wants to help play their part.
Thank you for spending your valuable time with us. We need each of you to help Win A Good War.
