President Trump’s New COVID-19 Adviser Is Making Public Health Experts Nervous-NPR

Dr. Scott Atlas has literally written the book on magnetic resonance imaging. He has also co-authored numerous scientific studies on the economics of medical imaging technology. “He’s an MRI guy,” says Dr. Ashish Jha, the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health. “If I was confused about some brain lesion and what the MRI findings were, I’d be happy to call him up.” But President Trump has tapped Atlas for a very different role — as an adviser on the coronavirus pandemic.
