An education specialist at Norwalk Hospital uses a local cable television show as one way to reach patients. Dr. Andrea Peterson and hospital vice president and chief medical officer Dr. Eric Mazur co-host the half-hour "Health Talk" show, which features doctors as well as patients and airs a few times each week. "Both Eric and I feel it is very important to have topics and discussions that are real and meaningful to people's health, bread-and-butter issues like diabetes, colon-cancer screening, strokes and MI, and medication safety," Peterson said.
