Jefferson Health System's new radio program "HealthWise With Dr. Marty Weisberg," educates listeners on how to ensure their good health. Tune in every Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. on WPEN 950 AM. HealthWise's host Martin M. Weisberg, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Jefferson Medical College (JMC), says listeners will learn something new every week about their personal health and medical problems that might crop up.
"This show talks about the kind of medicine your doctor practices,'' says Dr. Weisberg, who is well known as the former host of "Speaking Of Your Health" radio show on WCAU-AM from 1986 to 1990. "The medicine we will talk about is well-researched medicine coming from physicians who have years of experience. "HealthWise" is not intended to replace your personal physician, but the show and its guests can help educate you on what you need to ask your doctor about your own health, Dr. Weisberg explains. "Your best source of information is your doctor,'' he stresses. "Take this as an informational show inspiring questions to ask your doctor. Make all your medical decisions in conjunction with your doctor.''
Dr. Weisberg and his guests, Jefferson Health System physicians, will discuss a wide range of medical problems including arrhythmias, cancer, diabetes and ulcers and reliable, sensible medicine for treating them.
