Dr. Corey Hebert is a very busy man. Along with being the Medical Director for Dillard University, the Medical Director for the Louisiana Recovery School District, the Chief Medical Editor at WDSU-NBC and an Asst. Professor at Tulane University Medical Center, he has found time to create an important new media outlet - Black Health TV.
The first ever academically based, health information website for African Americans in the world, Black Health TV is unique in that it is predominantly online video. Black Health TV’s mission is to become the brand of choice for African-American health consumers by empowering as many people as possible with the best health information. The foundation of this vision is to use online health video to visually capture the attention of African-American viewers seeking to improve their health care outcomes.
"We all need to make the entire African American population aware of this innovative new health source that can save lives daily", says Dr. Hebert.
Hebert counts on his academic partners, Harvard University School of Medicine and Morehouse Schoolof Medicine, among others to share resources, information and offer data for segments. With topics ranging from women's health, understanding diabetes and the health benefits of breastfeeding, readers are sure to find solutions and suggestions to many of their health concerns and questions.
"Black Health TV has identified an all-star staff of experienced health journalists and television producers who specialize in taking complex medical topics and explaining them in an easy-to-understand manner", says the multi-tasker. "We produce the most compelling and reliable online health videos of unparalleled quality and credibility for the body, mind and spirit", he adds.
Viewers are encouraged to not only watch helpful videos, but to join featured online support groups as well. By following Black Health TV on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, African Americans are certain to receive a multitude of health tips and health news updates.
