Episode 185: Dr. Richard Besser

Besser 2  He trained in pediatrics, was the acting head of the CDC, the chief medical editor for ABC News, and is now the CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Some people just can’t hold a job. Along the way, he’s had a run-in with deadly tainted apple cider and courteous but critical Diane Sawyer. Two separate events. Plus music from an untainted J. Walter Hawkes. Good times at the Columbia Mailman School of Public Health.
