Demystifying Medicine One Month at a Time

Medical Mondays on KWGS Radio

kwgs-logo-lg2Thanks to the many of you that have inquired about the lack of recent posts. Fear not — you have not had your subscriptions cancelled.

GlassHospital has been on hiatus for some family-related events and the production of a new radio program that will air weekly on KWGS Radio, 89.5-FM, also known as Public Radio Tulsa.

It will run every Monday, broadcast in Tulsa at 11:30AM central and again at 7:30PM. Starting today!

This is the weekday slot occupied by Tulsa’s longstanding interview program “Studio Tulsa,” hosted for 23 years by Rich Fisher.

Rich has been gracious enough to allow me to host the program every Monday — the only difference is that it will be specifically covering health, medicine and wellness related topics.

Think of it as “StudioTulsa: Medical Mondays.” That’s what we’re going to call it.

If you can’t catch it live, you can always stream it at your convenience at

Thanks for listening!

Plugs & Outlets

GlassHospital is a platform upon which I develop ideas about communicating medical and health policy topics to an informed lay audience (that’s you).

Plug-and-OutletI’m pleased to say that some of those ideas develop from blog posts into more substantive articles (e.g. my first-ever post on the NPR “Shots” blog this week). Some also morph into radio commentaries and fuel my latest passion, guest-hosting a local NPR interview show.

Recently some readers made it known that they were not aware of the radio work or other publications. I list them under the “Fun Stuff” heading that you can reach from the home page of the blog.

To honor their request, I’m going to link below to some radio highlights. Here’s wishin’ all the Moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!

  • A radio interview about Women In Recovery, an amazing Tulsa-based program that helps low-level female offenders get out of prison and back into life.
  • An interview with Kevin Pho, the founder and curator of, one of the most widely-read health care blogs and the author of a new book.
  • My interview with John Silva, CEO of Morton Comprehensive Health Services, a Tulsa-based federally-qualified community health center.
  • An interview with Jennifer Hays-Grudo, a nationally known researcher in health and development, who now focuses on “adverse childhood events” and how to minimize them.

There are many others. Check out “Fun Stuff.” And thanks for listening.
