As assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, he led DoD’s military health system, overseeing the Defense Department’s $50 billion health budget and shepherding this mission critical care system through major reform efforts.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Woodson shortly after he took the reins of MHS. Some five years later, just before he would leave his post, he joined me once again on The Business of Government Hour to reflect on his tenure: his efforts to reform the military health system, transform military medicine, and strengthen military medicine’s global health engagement. I wanted to share his thoughts and insights from our conversation, which I invite you to listen to on The Business of Government Hour.
