New Season of “Health Today” from Shore Memorial Hospital Airs on NBC 40

July 15, 2008

A new season of “Health Today,” the weekly health television show from Shore Memorial Hospital, has begun on NBC 40. On the first show of the new season, “Roadmap of the Lungs: New Computer-Assisted Bronchoscopy,” Dr. Bennett Ojserkis, pulmonologist, explains about a new technology that allows doctors to see further into the lungs without surgery. This procedure helps physicians catch lung cancer during its earlier stages, when it is most treatable.

Included in the same show, Christina Kozmor, RN, director of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and community outreach, shows how Shore Memorial’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is helping patients with lung disease breathe easier. In the Wellness Corner, Microbiologist Lee McStravick-Collings identifies symptoms of lesser known tick borne illnesses.

The new series of shows includes information from local health experts about sleep disorders in children, family centered maternity care, radiation therapy and other topics. This season also features actual operating room footage of a surgery to remove cancerous breast tissue, special reports on programs and services offered at Shore Memorial, and wellness corner fit tips on exercise and healthy living.

Bill Elliott, executive director of the Shore Memorial Health Foundation, and Robin Stoloff, NBC 40 health reporter take turns as host of the show. Margie Barham, director, marketing and public relations at Shore Memorial is the show's producer.
