Podcast Discusses Health Issues Affecting Communities
SBH Bronx Health Talk is the first health podcast developed by a hospital in the Bronx.
Developed by SBH Health System from its studios at St. Barnabas Hospital, the podcast is available on Spotify, Apple iTunes, Google Play, Podbean, and its www.sbhbronxhealthtalk.org website (as well as the hospital’s www.sbhny.org website).
The weekly 15-minute program offers a close-up of medical and health care news in the Bronx.
“We view the podcast as a contemporary way to educate our community in a personal, straight-forward and engaging fashion,” said Faith Daniel, marketing and communications manager for SBH, and co-host of the podcast.
“Every week, medical specialists discuss their area of expertise in a conversational, easy-to-understand manner that is intended to give listeners the kind of information they would normally receive in a one-to-one consult with their health care professional.”
The podcast has, or will shortly, feature episodes on adolescent health, spring allergies, joint replacement, weight loss surgery, addiction medicine, stroke, geriatric care, maternal care/midwifery, varicose veins, WIC services, contraception, and sleep disorders.
A podcast is an original free service that allows Internet users to pull audio files from a podcasting website to listen on their computers, phones or personal digital audio players whenever they want.
