Episode Info:

Hi, everyone. Dr. Celine Gounder, here. I’m the host of “In Sickness and in Health.”

On this #GivingTuesday, I’d like to say thank you for being a listener… and for your support.

Right before the Thanksgiving holiday, I read a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association that reminded me why I do this show.

The report was about a big change in American health…. And the news… isn’t good.

Americans… for the first time since the end of the second world war… are dying younger than the generation before them.

Some of the biggest drivers of these deaths… are opioids and suicide… two topics we’ve covered a lot on the show over the past three seasons.

Poor health, it isn’t random. On this podcast, we explain what exactly is making millions of Americans sick… and what we can do about it. Those are the stories we bring you... season… after season.

My co-producer Zach Dyer and I… are working hard to bring you these stories… but quality journalism… costs money.

This holiday season, give the gift of storytelling… stories about our health… stories for impact.

Please consider becoming a member. Go to and make a contribution today. We’re a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your gift is tax-deductible.

Thanks for your support. We can’t do this without you.
