    S3E3: - Why We Trek

    S3E3: - Why We Trek

    Every year dozens of students organise ‘treks’ to their home towns and countries. Entirely voluntary and student led, they plan activities to to initiate their fellow students in the culture, politics and history of the place. Samer Hjouj leads the Palestine trek for the Harvard Kennedy School and Phoenix McLaughlin just led a trek to Maine.

    What motivates them to put in this hard work over and above their course load? How do they design the itinerary and what do they prioritise? What dilemmas do they face and how do they navigate it? What do they want the students to take away from this experience?

    Prachi Naik from the KSR Podcast team, also a participant in the Palestine trek, talks to them about all this and more.

    S2E5 - Health Policy: A View From The Inside feat. Dr. Alice Chen and Dr. Vivek Murthy

    S2E5 - Health Policy: A View From The Inside feat. Dr. Alice Chen and Dr. Vivek Murthy

    On this episode, Nusheen Ameenuddin sits down with Drs. Chen and Murthy to discuss how health policy has evolved since the Obama administration. Professional physician organizations, namely the AMA, have played a prominent role in opposing attempts to enact universal health insurance by stoking fears of “socialized medicine.” Yet in the summer of 2017, we saw very vocal and broad support for the ACA from the public as well as from individual physicians and medical societies. How does this shift inform the future of health policy, and how can we secure and maintain political engagement from the physician community?

Our team spoke with students and staff about the process that leads to those numbers, to offer a behind-the-scenes look at how faculty are hired, how students get involved, and where the school can go from here.
