Listening to AM radio stations is always a part of my daily routine. Aside from reading newspapers and news on the net, it’s my source of general information on topics like business, showbiz, political views and most specially health news. When I am at home, my AM-FM radio is always on and would switch channels to catch up on my favorite shows.
Even if I am a doctor myself, I do listen to fellow doctors discuss health topics on different radio shows. I find them very educational in terms of the latest trends in medicine at the same time I learn strategies on how to explain certain topics in simple terms and delivered in Filipino language. On my part I try to apply this in teaching my patients and my students as well.
The doctors who have regular AM radio shows are:
Dr Robin Navarro

A segment of Don Manolo Favis’ show is dedicated to answer questions about the health, with Dr Navarro as resource person. He supports proper nutrition such as eating functional food such as “bulalo” ,eggs and drinking milk.
