This is pandemic profiteering. I will be contacting my House and Senate delegation on Monday, and the Biden administration, and urging them to withdraw the nomination. washingtonpost.com/health/2021/02…

My thoughts reading this: 1. Why do they even have to go w/ Murthy AGAIN? Is no one else qualified? 2. I don't want to hear him sound off on social determinants of health, when he advised AirBnB--well known for exacerbating housing availability in cities. washingtonpost.com/health/2021/02…

Impressive. I received $250 for my last engagement, although I got to interact with the house staff + med students to discuss their career aspirations. Once I got $7,000 for an invited lecture to a society. But usually it’s in the range from zero to $1,200 washingtonpost.com/health/2021/02…
