BALTIMORE. Baltimore's Leana Wen: A Doctor For The City (National Public Radio)

It's only March, but Baltimore City Health Commissioner Leana Wen already has an embarrassingly full calendar.

She's put together the city's plan for dealing with the Zika virus, launched a campaign against soda and other sugary beverages and overseen an investigation into why so many people in the city are overdosing on fentanyl.

Trained in emergency medicine, Wen, 33, says running the health department in Baltimore is the fastest-paced job she's had.
