The Healthy Lifestyle Center at Ball State University is introducing a new podcast series, Habits, set to debut on January 31st. Habits is a health-focused podcast that will feature interviews with research and community experts, community organizers, and community members to provide insight into various health topics that influence the lives of East Central Indiana citizens. Funding and support for the podcast have been provided by a grant from the Indiana State Department of Health, with the aim of reinforcing the workforce of community health professionals across this region of the state.
Dr. Christina Doll, Associate Professor of Health Education and Promotion, will serve as the director of the podcast series, aided by undergraduate and graduate students across the university:
The podcast will serve as an important health information resource for local communities. We hope our listeners will learn something new each episode, whether innovative research findings from one of our faculty experts or accessible resources from one of our community informants.
Each episode will focus on a fascinating, local health topic, including healthy eating, maternal and infant health, and even how to keep your New Year’s resolution.
The Healthy Lifestyle Center is a community-based resource center located in the Health Professions Building at Ball State University, featuring free nutrition, substance abuse, and health behavior change counseling from graduate students and faculty across the College of Health and trained medical professionals from IU Health Ball Memorial. Information regarding appointments and services can be obtained at www.hlcmuncie.com.
