In my inaugural column I promised to share facts and my perspectives on reality and to raise questions and paint a picture of the emerging future. My goal was, and is, to provoke thinking and encourage greater engagement in building better public health policies.
Now, in the midst of a pandemic and on the threshold of an election, I recap issues raised and the realities I foresaw before COVID-19. Indeed, patient-centricity and institutional trust, transparency and outcomes, and population health and prevention are the most frequently explored themes in this column.
