Hosted by Yale-Trained Physician, Harvard MBA Recipient and New Mom, “Dr. Darria”
ATLANTA, August 21, 2015 – Sharecare, a comprehensive health and wellness engagement platform, announced today it has launched a weekly podcast to help people live their healthiest lives. Available for free download and subscription on iTunes, Sharecare Radio is hosted by Dr. Darria Long Gillespie, Sharecare’s senior vice president of clinical strategy and a practicing emergency room physician.
“As both an ER doctor and a new mother, I’ve witnessed firsthand how overwhelming it can be for people to get reliable, accurate medical information – and when you find a source you know you can trust, it’s nothing short of a relief,” said Dr. Darria. “Each week on Sharecare Radio, we distill complex medical information into effective and actionable advice that’s realistic, relatable and even fun.”
Each episode of Sharecare Radio features interviews with some of the greatest minds in health and medicine across an array of topics, ranging from nutrition, fitness and women’s health to mental health, chronic disease and parenting. The Show’s conversational format also offers entertaining health-focused conversations with well-known personalities like CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Top Chef finalist Kevin Gillespie and actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, and features recurring themed segments each month, including:
- “Travel Well”: tips on how to stay healthy and active while traveling through the segment, sponsored by Intercontinental Hotel Group’s EVEN Hotels initiative;
- “Busy Woman’s Guide”: actionable advice to help women be healthy while juggling the responsibilities of work, family and life, in general; and
- “Ask Dr. Darria”: answers to questions submitted by the Show’s listeners via Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #SharecareRadio.
