Join us for this rare “two host” conversation between TNS hosts Michael Lerner and Steve Heilig. Michael will talk with Steve about his work as a public health specialist and expert in epidemiology and medical ethics, specifically with regard to COVID-19.
Trained at five University of California campuses in public health, epidemiology, medical ethics, addiction, economics, environmental sciences, and other disciplines, Steve Heilig’s work includes positions at the San Francisco Marin Medical Society, California Pacific Medical Center, UCSF, and as co-editor of the Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics. He has served on many organizational boards and appointed commissions, and is a trained hospice worker. He is a music festival emcee, and widely published essayist and book and music critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, Huffington Post, and many other publications. His undergraduate honors thesis was about the ever-growing threat of pandemics, and thus in these times his interests have come “full circle.”
