MiCareMatters PodcastThe MHA released a new episode of the MiCare Champion Cast, which features interviews with healthcare policy experts in Michigan on key issues that impact healthcare and the health of communities.

On this episode, Lydia Watson, MD, senior vice president and chief medical officer of MidMichigan Health, discusses her perspective of the COVID-19 pandemic, from managing the needs of front-line staff to sharing stories of hope and healing throughout some of the most challenging moments of 2020. Later in the show, Watson debunks some common myths about the COVID-19 vaccines.

This podcast is part of the statewide #MiCareMatters campaign, launched in 2017, which aims to build a network of citizens — “MiCare Champions” — who will be called upon to engage in advocacy efforts to protect access to affordable healthcare services in Michigan. It is currently available to listen to via YouTube and SoundCloud.
