Kids Healthcast

The Kids Healthcast podcast strives to make health information easily accessible to parents in the Indianapolis community and beyond. The podcast offers a way for listeners to understand the role that social determinants of health, such as education and socioeconomic status, impact health and connect them with resources that will, hopefully, help mitigate these effects. The residency rotations, as well as the Kids Healthcast interns, at the Community Pediatrics department get the opportunity to experience frequent problems that patients may face in obtaining healthcare and learn about organizations and resources that patients can be directed to, if need be. This project connects professionals with the community and develops necessary communication skills with the goal of improving care.
