Health Link

Each week on 'Health Link,' members of the local medical community discuss a wide variety of issues related to health and healthy living. Hosted by Benita Zahn, the program delves deeper than the usual soundbites to provide you with important health information that is useful, comprehensible and contextualized.

'Health Link' airs Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 10:30 a.m. on WMHT.

Whether you or someone you care for is struggling with a health problem, or if you are well and want to stay that way, 'Health Link' is a vital resource for our community.

If you have a question or comment, please send us an e-mail. Your feedback may even appear on a future episode of 'Health Link.'

You can watch recent episodes of 'Health Link' on WMHT.org thanks to the support of our generous members and contributors.
