DEBUT! Community Wellness Watch 8/31/21: Senior Care

Producer/Host: Emma Weiss, WERU intern

Community Wellness Watch is a program about public health. Hosted and produced by WERU intern Emma Weiss, the first full-length program for this project is focused on Senior Care. Each month, Emma sits down with local healthcare providers to talk about how they have adjusted their practices throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and how they continue to keep our communities healthy and safe. This is not meant to serve as professional medical advice, but rather we hope to inform listeners of healthcare resources in the area and give a huge thank you to these providers for their very important work. Support for Community Wellness Watch comes from the Maine Community Foundation.
