I’m very sad to hear about Michael Gerson’s passing. We spoke many times over the years, especially about global health, and when I started talking about pandemic prevention back in 2015, he was one of the first journalists I wanted to talk to. b-gat.es/3EFUr4g

Many people don’t know that Mike was a champion for and leader on PEPFAR – the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief – which has saved millions of lives. It’s one of the best things this country has ever done. It will be a lasting part of his legacy.
