Reality TV or Healthcare Summit?

Preparing for the Debate and a TV Audience 

By Staff Reporters

In convening today’s bipartisan health session, President Obama is angling to recreate the kind of spontaneous, unscripted debate that gave him a decided advantage when he took questions on live television at a House Republican retreat in Baltimore Maryland, last month.

Dr. William’s Video on Hip-Hop Health

It’s Not All about Health 2.0 and Technology

By Ann Miller; RN, MHA

Nearly 144,000 people die each year from stroke in the United States, making it the third leading cause of death in the country, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC].

The Founder

Olajide Williams MD is the founder and director of the Hip Hop Public Health Education Center at Harlem Hospital, a series of health awareness programs that use music to teach pre-adolescents about strokes.

To combat these statistics, Williams and his staff host two-day sessions at Harlem elementary schools, coaching students through music about the warning signs and proper response to a stroke. Each student is then tasked to share what he or she learned with a parent or guardian at home.

Unique Business Model

Through a unique blend of community involvement and advocacy, Williams has proved that Health 2.0 technology isn’t the only solution to the pressing problems of health and wellness. The fact is, sometimes rap music and creativity are the best prescriptions.

Assessment

The center’s sponsors include GE, the New York City Council, and the National Stroke Association. Similar programs are being developed for obesity and cardiovascular health.
