Health Heroes

Sep 30, 2020

Lynnette Cooke, Global CEO of Kantar Health, and noted population health expert Dr David Nash from Thomas Jefferson University assess some of the mental health impacts of COVID-19 in the US.

Kantar Health Heroes podcast series aims to inform and educate life sciences companies on ways for getting closer to patients to help drive improved health outcomes. This episode looks at the effects of increased anxiety on patients’ attitudes and behaviours during the pandemic and how approaches to mental health in the US need to change.

Lynnette and Dr Nash spoke with Dominic Tyer from pharmaphorum, the online destination for pharmaceutical news and analysis, about what the coronavirus outbreak means for US public health. They also discussed some of the technological changes that have followed in COVID’s wake, such as the accelerating adoption of telehealth and digital communications.
