When Dr. Wen was a medical student, her mother was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. As she helped her mother navigate the medical system, Dr. Wen experienced the disconnect between what patients need and what the healthcare system provides. She has devoted her career to transforming the healthcare system through patient and provider education, consumer advocacy, and public policy reform. Dr. Wen has been featured in Time, Newsweek, ABC, CBS, NPR, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, The New York Times, and The Washington Post.
