Podcast: Behind the Health Statistic
Behind the Health Statistic is an educational podcast that explores the human and personal perspectives of health and illness. In a world where our media is saturated with health data and statistics, the podcast aims to take the listeners attention away from the numbers and on to the people.
The podcast has been produced by a team of Nursing Academics led by Ricky Hellyar, a Lecturer in Adult Nursing. It involves the participation of individuals who have kindly and bravely shared their health stories. Series one of the podcast is made up of 10 episodes which cover a range of health topics and experiences from living with anorexia, to battling a gambling addiction.
