Episode Info:

Washington is quiet this week, ahead of the Fourth of July holiday and with Congress on recess.

So we're featuring excerpts from two classic conversations: doctor-turned-venture capitalist Bijan Salehizadeh on how he invests in health care and why he passed on Theranos (starts at the 1:35 mark) and Gates Foundation CEO Sue Desmond-Hellmann on how her foundation views public health and what the United States can learn from global efforts (starts at the 15:00 mark).


Bijan's full 2016 appearance on "Pulse Check," where he explained how venture capitalists approach the health industry and how he decides where to invest.

Sue's full 2017 appearance on "Pulse Check," where she explained her foundation's work on problems like polio and why she wishes "prevention" was more of a political priority in U.S. health efforts.
