Podcast is the new prescription for Healthy Matters

For more than 13 years Dr. David Hilden’s trusted voice was heard on WCCO Radio every Sunday morning as host of the popular Healthy Matters program, sponsored by Hennepin Healthcare. But now listeners can hear their favorite doctor anytime – on the new Healthy Matters podcast – and the internal medicine physician can finally sleep in on Sunday mornings.

“It was a great 13 years and I’m sure I’ll miss the live show, but we have exciting options planned for the podcast to inject some of that same live energy and interest for our audience,” Dr. Hilden explains. “And we’ll be able to be more flexible with guests, topics and themes – and sure, having an entire weekend off won’t be so bad!”

Healthy Matters is available at www.healthymatters.org or wherever podcasts are available and will feature interviews with medical experts on a variety of current health topics, questions from listeners on “Hilden’s House Calls,” behind-the-scenes stories from HCMC – Minnesota’s first Level I Trauma hospital, and much more.

In his matter-of-fact, easy way that made a genuine connection with his radio audience, Dr. Hilden provides expert knowledge about a wide range of medical topics and invites colleagues to join him to make sure listeners hear the latest and most informative medical news on the podcast, which just launched its third episode.

“I’m mostly encouraged about being able to stay connected with the listeners who have inspired me and will continue to be so essential to the program,” he says. “And now they can listen on their own time as well.”

The podcast encourages listener interaction by asking them to email Dr. Hilden at healthymatters@hcmed.org), call 612-873-TALK (8255) or Tweet @drdavidhilden. Go to www.healthymatters.org for more information – and to connect with a (well-rested) Dr. Hilden.
