A Conversation With Dr. William Foege and Dr. Tony Billingsley on COVID-19

Baker Boyer had the recent privilege of coordinating a conversation with Dr. William Foege, a global health expert and former director of the CDC during the Carter and Reagan administrations, on the topic of COVID-19.

Dr. Tony Billingsley, Chief of Staff and ER doctor at St. Mary’s in Walla Walla joins Dr. Foege as well and offers his local perspective on our situation and response to the pandemic. Anne Sumner, VP of Operations for Asset Management at Baker Boyer, and Dr. Foege’s niece, moderates the conversation.

Dr. Foege is a great storyteller and a wealth of knowledge, so we hope you’ll sit back, relax, take a few moments to watch, and gain some valuable insights on this complex situation. Enjoy!
