This past Sunday’s episode of Radio Rounds (January 17) featured a pair of powerful and moving interviews, and we encourage all of you to listen to the free-to-download podcast on our iTunes page (the full show will be available soon, but for now, you can listen to Dr. Evan Lyon’s interview in its entirety at our brand new website: www.radiorounds.org ).
First, we heard from Dr. Evan Lyon, a physician for the Massachusetts-based organization ‘Partners in Health.’ For the past decade, Dr. Lyon has split his time between Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and seven Partners in Health/Zanmi Lasante sites located in Haiti. With this week’s devastating earthquake in Haiti — the death toll for which is currently approx. 200,000 — Dr. Lyon is on his way back to his clinics in Haiti to help. We were fortunate enough to speak to Dr. Lyon from his layover in Miami, FL.
We also featured a special interview with a young patient named Brandon. In November, ‘Rounds’ co-host Lakshman Swamy and a group of second year medical students from the Boonshoft School of Medicine visited the Haslinger Family Pediatric Palliative Care Center at Akron Children’s Hospital, in Akron, Ohio. While at the Center, they met and spoke with numerous patients, families, and physicians. Among them — Brandon, who spoke with Lakshman & co. bedside, along with his mother and his physician. Brandon is 14 years old and has neuroblastoma. He describes — with inspiring perspective — his diagnosis and his life. This is the first in a unique upcoming documentary series featuring the patients from the Haslinger Center.
Finally, in this week’s Residency Program segment, we heard from Dr. Steven Reichert, the program director for the Cornell University Internal Medicine program at New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens, in New York City.
