She has been featured in TIME, Newsweek, ABC News, NPR, CNN, The New York Times, Washington Post, Teen Vogue, and the award-winning HBO documentary Reporter. Dr. Wen speaks regularly across the U.S. and in Europe, Asia, and Africa on simple yet effective ways for patients to take control of their health and her new book: When Doctors DonĂ­t Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests.
