On June 17, 2022, NYHealth hosted a webinar discussion with Dr. Dave A. Chokshi, moderated by New York Health Foundation (NYHealth) President and CEO David Sandman.

As Commissioner of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Dr. Chokshi was celebrated for his calm, science-based, equity-centered approach to managing the City’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a Visiting Fellow at NYHealth, Dr. Chokshi is now sharing what he learned during his time as Commissioner and continuing his work to build a healthier New York.

Drs. Chokshi and Sandman reflected on vital lessons learned from the pandemic and discussed pressing health issues such as the overdose crisis, primary care, racial justice, and veterans’ health.
