To the Editor:
I’m pretty certain that Dr. Mary Bassett will be an improvement over Farley (“Conversant on AIDS, New Health Commissioner Not Known Among Advocates,” by Duncan Osborne, Jan. 22). She apparently understands concepts like “the social determinants of health,” which Farley pooh-poohed. “Just do what we, the docs, tell you” was his philosophy. It’ll be interesting to see who she appoints as the HIV/AIDS assistant commissioner.
