The Health Show #1317

1988 was an interesting year.  A presidential election was underway.  The Mets were in first place.  And a public radio station in Albany, New York decided to begin producing a weekly program on health issues hosted by Dr. David Carpenter called The Health Show.  

25 years, several hosts and producers and 1,317 episodes later, we come to the final installment of that show.  On today’s Health Show, we’ll look back at some of the segments of the show that we are most proud of.  

We’ll hear some of the conversation with Nina and a colleague about their experiences as breast cancer patients.

Listen to some of Bob’s interview with the man who helped eradicate smallpox from the world.

And hear our award winning conversation with people living with terminal cancer.

Bob has been a part of the WAMC family since 2001. He currently produces and hosts National Production's The Best Of Our Knowledge. Over the years, Bob has produced The Environment Show and The Health Show for National Productions and hosted weekend mornings on WAMC for a decade. In addition to producing TBOOK, he is currently a reporter and on air host at WUWF Public Radio at the University of West Florida in Pensacola.
