Andrew Noymer, Professor of Population Health and Disease Prevention at the University of California, Irvine who researches health and mortality, pandemics and epidemiology joins us to discuss how our country’s leadership is taking us in exactly the wrong direction as Trump threatens to cut funds for testing.
