Best Person Who Knows What the Fuck They’re Doing: Dr. Leana Wen

Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen works quietly and consistently to educate us and keep us healthy—see her work on the city’s B’more for Healthy Babies campaign, or the way she’s helped get people trained and registered to administer the overdose drug naloxone, for example. We only wish that Mayor Pugh, who has been pretty regressive in her statements about drug treatment, would defer to Wen instead of speaking out of turn about something she obviously doesn’t know much about. Wen, however, knows the deal.
