Health Speak is a podcast series by Healthy Tasmania.
Season One of Health Speak was fun: Health people, without the jargon.
This podcast is the fastest (and often funniest) way to learn which health professionals you really need in your life. The statistics tell us that most Australians don’t know enough about “Health Speak” to properly look after their health. From Bum Doctors to Speech Pathologists, Dieticians to Exercise Physiologists, in this podcast Penny Terry rejects the health jargon, bans the big words and leaves the Latin alone as she finds out who these people are, how they can help, and what they do… to you.
This project was funded by the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants through the Tasmanian Government.
Season Two of Health Speak has landed!
How to help when you can’t make a casserole – Helping others, from our homes, during COVID-19.
The 2nd season of Health Speak helps us to help others, and to take the load off our health professionals and other community services who are flat out during the COVID-19 pandemic. So how do we help when we can’t go round for a cuppa, make a casserole or give someone a cuddle? Penny Terry chats with some of those people and support services who are doing it really tough right now, to find some practical, simple ways that we can all help, from our homes. Penny will cut through the really complex stuff, so you can leave the conversation knowing you can be helpful rather than helpless.
