Former U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy served under President Obama. He left that post this past spring after the Trump administration called on him to resign.

Before becoming a surgeon general, Murthy worked at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, and this weekend he joined a panel discussion at the 10th annual Clinton Global Initiative University meeting at Northeastern University.

Dr. Murthy joined Weekend Edition to discuss.
