Two doctors from Beaumont Health in Michigan are taking a part-time gig behind the microphone to host a podcast delivering their healthcare-related wisdom. The podcast—"Beaumont HouseCall"—deals with topics that Drs. Nick Gilpin and Asha Shajahan are often asked about by patients, such as the Zika virus and sports injuries.
"I have a passion for all things science and medicine. I love to golf, collect vinyl LPs, read and travel to new places," Gilpin, chief medical officer at Beaumont Hospital-Grosse Pointe, said in a news release. "I'm excited to be able to share my medical expertise through the podcast."
His co-host is Beaumont-Grosse Pointe's community health medical director. "I believe in natural therapies for wellness and empowering my patients to combine art and medicine to create healthier lifestyles," Shajahan said in the release. "I'm looking forward to talking about health topics on the podcast in an entertaining and informative way."
Seven episodes are already available on Beaumont.org, iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud and Google Play. The released episodes explore issues such as infectious diseases, community health, sports medicine and proton therapy.
So far the podcast has earned five stars from reviewers.
