NMC’s Health Beat

NMC’s Health Beat is dedicated to discussing current healthcare topics of interest to our community. We launched the show with the help of Northwest Access TV in the fall of 2014 and it airs on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week on Channel 15.

Our goal is to provide education about available NMC services and to help viewers become more informed consumers of health care. The show features NMC’s Jill Berry Bowen as host and she speaks with a variety of NMC staff and healthcare providers. Each conversational episode gives viewers a chance to hear health care issues discussed by members of our talented team, connecting you to the people who deliver your care. 
If you have a topic you would like us to discuss on the show, please contact Kate Laddison in our Community Relations office at 802-524-1239 or through email at [email protected]
