Prognosis Ohio

Hosted by Columbus local and Ohio University professor Dan Skinner, Prognosis Ohio is a podcast addressing all facets of healthcare, health policy, and health politics in Ohio. The podcast aims to shine a light on a wide range of health and healthcare issues throughout Ohio, from changing legislative developments affecting Ohioans’ access to health care services; to stories of Ohioans in interacting with our state’s healthcare system; to ongoing challenges in housing, food, transportation, and other systems that relate to health outcomes, and are often shaped by inequalities and barriers; to addiction, mental health, and challenges with meeting Ohioans’ healthcare needs; and the health challenges around specific populations throughout Ohio, such as those facing Central Ohio’s LGBTQ, population and communities of color. Every other week Prognosis Ohio brings a news roundup to WCBE podcast experience listeners, as well as an in-depth interview on a pressing issue. Follow Prognosis Ohio on Twitter at @PrognosisOhio
