Healthstyles is back on daytime radio on WBAI on Thursdays from 1:00 to 2:00. Tomorrow’s program is hosted by Diana Mason and opens with Health News, a segment of the program that highlights some of the policy and research developments in health and health care. This is followed by an interview with Esther Madudu, a midwife in Eastern Uganda who has dedicated her life to improving outcomes for pregnant women and their children by ensuring access to midwifery services and birthing supports. An ambassador for Amref Health Africa, Madudu shares her story of commitment to saving the lives of women and children, along with a discussion of Amref’s work to promote health in Africa.

The program ends with a discussion of the VA crisis and an initiative called “Have You Ever Served?” that aims to increase the likelihood that clinicians outside of the VA health system will recognize health problems that can arise from exposures and injuries that occurred when patients served in the military.

You can listen to the program on WBAI, 99.5 FM orĀ  online at www.wbai.org.

Healthstyles is sponsored by the Center for Health, Media & Policy at Hunter College.
