On the podcast this week is Else Smith. Else is an MD, PHD and the previous CEO of the Danish Health Authority. She has been a board member of the Global World Health Organization, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and for the European Medicines Agency. She has also extensive research and clinical experience within infectious diseases.

Dr. Marco Bo Hansen, Sani nudge Medical Director had the privilege to sit down with Else as she shared career highlights spanning across her specialty in public health, her work with Aids and HIV infections in women in the mid 1980’s, and building the WHO directed influenza pandemic plan in Denmark. 

A few key takeaways:

  • On corona’s impact: “We achieve a stronger awareness of hygiene.”
  • On corona testing: “Of course in general, testing helps us keep track.”
  • On keeping our healthcare workers safe: “If you don’t have healthy healthcare workers, then there is no health for the population.”
