Setting Policy for What Comes After COVID-19: Dr. Faheem Ahmed ’20
Like many of his classmates, Dr. Faheem Ahmed started the spring semester, primed to put the finishing touches on his MBA. But after COVID-19 began to spread, he relocated to his home in London to complete his degree remotely and work on the frontline of the crisis.
In this special episode of Bizcast, Ahmed -- who has a medical degree from King’s College London and a master’s degree in health systems management from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine -- gives us his perspective on the UK response to the pandemic.
Ahmed also discusses his recently published article in The Lancet, co-authored with Professor Joseph Stiglitz, on COVID-19 is exacerbating social inequality around the world, especially among those with low incomes and black and ethnic minority communities.
