About

Public Radio’s Health News Magazine

Welcome to Sound Medicine, now in its 14th season, presenting ‘content of consequence’ in a news magazine format familiar to NPR news/talk audiences across America. 

Every week, host /anchor Barbara Lewis introduces you to doctors, clinicians, and research scientists from around the world. Through engaging interviews and sound portraits, Sound Medicine explores and illuminates current news and health issues with a sense of immediacy and authority.

Always curious, willing to challenge our assumptions, Sound Medicine reporting both empowers and entertains listeners. Tuning in, you’ll hear regular features like cover stories, health news headlines, field reports from independent reporters around the world, first person essays on the art and science of medicine, as well as quirky observations about health and medicine that you won’t hear anywhere else.

Sound Medicine both enlightens and encourages listeners to make sound health decisions. It’s a forum for health issues that affect you, your family, your friends and neighbors. Sound Medicine is a weekly radio appointment keeping; and a valuable podcast resource anytime in between.
