- KHN’s ‘What the Health?’: 100 Days of Health Policyon April 29, 2021 at 6:20 pm
It’s 100 days into Joe Biden’s presidency and a surprisingly large number of health policies have been announced.

Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention loosens its mask-wearing recommendations for those who have been vaccinated, but the new rules are confusing. Joanne Kenen of Politico, Mary Ellen McIntire of CQ Roll Call and Sarah Karlin-Smith of the Pink Sheet join KHN’s Julie Rovner to discuss these issues and more. Plus, Rovner interviews KHN’s Julie Appleby, who reported the latest KHN-NPR “Bill of the Month” episode.
