The public health school will launch a new podcast next week exploring the effects that activities like binge-watching TV or eating out have on a person’s health.
The Milken Institute School of Public Health will debut the podcast – titled “Healthy You” – Wednesday and will release new episodes every other Wednesday throughout the fall semester. Officials said the podcast will work to “build a bridge” between everyday health decisions and the academic subject of public health.
The program will be hosted by Chelcie Rosborough, a marketing associate, and Matthew Golden, the director of communications at the public health school.
Rosborough said the podcast episodes “will tackle some of the most pressing health concerns of today,” including health topics in the news, like the impact of immigration on adolescents and the spread of superbugs. She said the podcast will feature public health researchers on each episode, like practicing physicians, department chairs and associate professors.
“We decided to launch ‘Healthy You’ because here at the Milken Institute School of Public Health, experts are constantly conducting valuable public health research that the public needs to know about,” she said.
She said the program will be promoted on Milken’s social media pages and in its weekly newsletter. The podcast will be available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music and Spotify.
“A lot of the research being done has a direct impact on our health and well-being as individuals as well as the world around us,” she said.
