Worcester County Health Department releases new podcast for residents on Fridays

WORCESTER, Md.- In Worcester County, the health department is trying to reach out to the public in a new way by doing a podcast.

Their podcast “What the Health is Going On?” started this month.

They said they hope that using this platform will allow them to help more people understand public health issues, like COVID-19 ,physical fitness, suicide prevention, and environmental health.

Plus, they will also be sharing information about programs and services offered in the county.

“We want to keep that constant conversation going, that dialogue with the community, so that the questions that we see pop up a lot on our Facebook and email for the health department can be addressed not just for the people asking,” Travis Brown, Public Affairs Officer for Worcester County Health Department, said.

The Worcester County Health Department said that they are going to try to release a new podcast every Friday.

They already have one out now and for more information on where you can listen you can head to WorcesterHealth.org.
