Harvard’s global health leader on making America even greater

President Donald Trump has talked about putting ‘America First.’ Who better to weigh in on the implications for global health than Ashish Jha, who leads Harvard’s Global Health Institute and is a leader in U.S. health care research too.

Jha joined POLITICO’s Dan Diamond to discuss his work on global health issues (starts at the 1:30 mark), his deep concerns about Trump’s immigration ban and his own immigrant experience (5:00), how he juggles multiple roles as a professor, researcher and clinician (11:30), his research into gender and physician performance (17:30), ProPublica’s surgeon scorecard (21:30), why he helped resurrect a climate change conference that CDC cancelled (30:30), and more.

Also: Stay tuned for the lightning round that starts at 34:10.
