Introducing Radio SIH

Why does my child keep getting sick? Why is high blood pressure the silent killer? These are just some of the topics covered in Southern Illinois Healthcare’s new online podcast channel: Radio SIH.

Radio SIH features different experts, all practicing at SIH facilities, giving useful advice about today’s health topics.

You can either listen online at sih.net/radio or go to iTunes and search Radio SIH to download our podcasts to your smartphone.

Either way, it’s a great way to learn about your health from physicians you are familiar with. Topics focus in on things that are local, happening right now in southern Illinois.

For instance, the Center for Disease Control has identified southern Illinois as a place where atrial fibrillation is prevalent. Dr. Daniel Correa de Sa, Prairie electrophysiologist explains why managing atrial fibrillation is so important. He discusses the nature of the disease along with typical symptoms. You can hear first-hand what treatment solutions are available right here.

While SIH frequently has physician speakers at various events and on local media channels, Radio SIH allows you the flexibility to listen to these medical discussions on your own time.

Be sure to tune in.
