ABOUT THE "WHAT IN THE HEALTH?" PODCAST
Welcome to What in the Health? (also known as WitH The Podcast)! We are a digital platform that helps young adults make informed health choices by combining credible health information with expert opinions at Johns Hopkins University. Recognizing that the abundance of public health research and its intersections can be daunting, we wanted to create a podcast and social media platform that condenses everything you need to know in under an hour. Why this time frame? Because we know that our audience leads busy lives, and sometimes, just knowing the basics about topics, such as COVID-19, skincare, or even Big Pharma, is enough to spark one’s curiosity to explore more. As a student-led initiative, our goal is to help you recognize trends, misconceptions, resources, and information to take control of your health. Between regular podcast episodes, interviews, informative social media posts, and much more, we invite you to join a community that empowers your experiences with public health. Our hope is that you recognize that public health can be found anywhere and everywhere around you.
