Profiles in Public Service tells the compelling stories about the unsung public servant leaders who have driven government’s most important accomplishments.
Co-hosts Loren DeJonge Schulman and Rachel Klein-Kircher help break down common myths about government by highlighting the critical ways in which federal employees have demonstrated bold leadership to protect our health, safety and general well-being. In an age when people continue to hold negative views about government—but also rely on it to solve big problems and crises—the stories we share promise to rebuild public faith in the nation’s largest public organization.
Hosts Loren DeJonge Schulman and Rachel Klein-Kircher talk to Drs. Gary Gibbons and Eliseo Pérez-Stable from the NIH about their groundbreaking efforts to tackle COVID-19 health disparities. The two leaders discuss the importance of diverse vaccine trials, what the pandemic has taught them about promoting health equity and the latest vaccine acceptance rates in underserved communities.
