On PopHealth Week our very special guest is former Secretary David Shulkin. David Jonathon Shulkin is an American physician and former government official. In 2017, Shulkin became the 9th United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs and served under President Donald Trump. Before assuming the top spot at the VA, he served as the Under Secretary of Veterans Affairs for Health from 2015 until 2017, appointed by President Barack Obama. On March 28, 2018, President Trump dismissed Shulkin from his position by tweet. Since leaving office, and retuning to his life in the private sector, Secretary Shulkin has authored a book chronicling his time at the VA, and JUST TODAY his publisher has released the previously embargoed title: "It Shouldn't Be This Hard to Serve Your Country: Our Broken Government and the Plight of Veterans". Join Fred Goldstein as we explore what the Secretary chronicled in this just released book. ==##==
