FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
UPPER NYACK, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Global Healthy Living Foundation (GHLF) is thrilled to announce the launch of “Informed Immunity: A Guide to Vaccines for the Chronic Illness Community,” a groundbreaking podcast dedicated to providing accessible and reliable vaccine information.
“Informed Immunity: A Guide to Vaccines for the Chronic Illness Community,” is part of GHLF’s Wellness Evolution podcast group, taking a deep dive into the world of vaccines, tackling crucial topics that impact community health — respiratory infectious diseases, vaccine advocacy, and more.
The episodes, offered in English and Spanish, are thoughtfully designed to break down complex health topics into easily digestible information, answering the questions you’ve always had about vaccines but didn’t know whom to ask.
“In today’s health care landscape, we often witness a system that is fractured and complex, leaving patients to navigate endless hurdles,” said Robert Popovian, PharmD, Chief Science Policy Offer at GHLF.
“We must be mindful of these challenges before addressing misinformation and vaccine hesitancy. It’s unfair to scrutinize patient reluctance when we, as a health care community, have yet to streamline the path for patients to access the care they deserve, making it unnecessarily difficult every step of the way.”
These words underscore the Global Healthy Living Foundation’s mission to provide the public with easily accessible, evidence-based vaccine information. “Our aim is to demystify complex topics like RSV, pneumococcal, influenza, and COVID-19 vaccines, breaking them down into easily understandable insights,” said podcast host and Director of Medical Affairs and Hispanic Outreach at GHLF, Daniel Hernandez, MD. “We are, unfortunately, in an age where misinformation spreads like wildfire, and we are committed to taking part in helping our communities take charge with evidence-based information.”
In addition to the podcast, GHLF recently launched its new vaccine landing page, which will house its vaccine research, advocacy, and education efforts. This comprehensive resource will serve as a hub for patients and policymakers alike, fostering collaboration and informed decision-making.
