The Practicalities of Policy; Alex Trebot Returns


Democracy is messy

  • Dave declared this recording day to be “Effort Free Friday,” as it was officially Thanksgiving Break! That didn’t stop M2 Jeff Goddard from telling the story of a recent meeting of the AMA Students Section that offered an object lesson on how policy is (or in this case, isn’t) made.
  • Among many other topics, some students wanted the AMA to declare a position on the current Israel-Hamas war. In the end, the AMA declined to do so, perhaps deciding that it didn’t have the political capital on a divisive issue that could threaten its ability to participate in other conversations it has a more direct role in. Co-hosts M2 Happy Kumar, MD/PhD student Faith Goddard, and MD/PhD student Riley Behan Bush talk about their personal efforts to understand this compilated issue.
