Thank you, Dr. El Sayed. Your podcast is incredibly helpful. Helpful and truthful—with facts!!

Thank you again, Dr. El Sayed. I just listened to your interview with Andrew Yang. This country needs the leadership of men like both of you, involved in some capacity, to run this country.

It is refreshing to hear a straight forward discussion of pertinent healthcare issues in this country in language that anyone could understand and with data to back it up. If this current crisis does not convince us that we need universal and affordable healthcare I don’t know what will.
