AdvaMed Launches a New Podcast

WASHINGTON, D.C. – AdvaMed today announced the launch of the first-ever AdvaMed-owned and -produced podcast: Medtech POV. The podcast is hosted by AdvaMed President and CEO Scott Whitaker and covers the intersection of medtech and policy from every perspective.

Tune in to each episode for interesting discussions with medtech and health care policy leaders on issues that are driving the day—from business to policy and current events, all viewed through the lens of the medtech industry.

The First Two Episodes: General James Mattis & Former FDA Commissioner Steve Hahn 

The first episode features a Q&A session from a recent event AdvaMed hosted with General James Mattis. Listen in as we pick his brain about everything from Covid-19 and international trade relations to how he got his famous call sign “Chaos.”

The second episode is with Dr. Steve Hahn, former commissioner of the FDA. Scott and Dr. Hahn had a great chat about how he got into medicine, what his incredible year at FDA in the middle of a pandemic was like, his relationship with President Trump, and his views on the future of both the FDA and the medtech industry.
