Other transformative projects include a collective impact strategy that has reduced infant mortality by nearly 40 percent in seven years; an initiative to get every child glasses who needs them; and a program to engage returning citizens and hospitals in treating violence as a contagious disease.

She has been published more than 100 articles including in The LancetJAMA, and Health Affairs. The author of When Doctors Don’t Listen, she is regularly featured on NPR, CNN, New York TimesWashington Post, and USA Today. In 2016, Dr. Wen was the recipient of the American Public Health Association’s highest award for local public health work, the Milton and Ruth Roemer Award.
