I have always thought that an essential element of being a good clinician is the ability to be a good teacher. Educating patients and their families about their health and the steps they can take to improve it is not just a professional obligation. It is a foundation for trust, patient engagement and better outcomes.
That’s why I am so excited about my new undertaking as the host of a radio show devoted to educating the public on matters of health and well-being. The show is called “Well Said” and is being produced by the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell in collaboration with the award-winning Hofstra radio station, WRHU.
You can learn more about the show, including access to prior segments on our website.
I look forward to your comments and suggestions!
