New feature: Dr. Hilden in the News

Hey.

Just a brief post to call your attention to a new feature right here on MyHealthyMatters. Since I do a fair amount of media work – including TV, radio, online, and in print, I thought it might be good to do a collection and put links all in one place.

It’s right there at the top of the page: called Dr. Hilden in the News.   

In putting this together I noticed that much of my media appearances involve influenza.  Guess that’s what the media wants to talk about!

That being said, there are a few other links on the Dr. Hilden in the News page that I want to call your attention to:

AirTalk™ on Southern California public radio.  This is an 18-minute discussion about whether you really need an annual physical.  It aired just last month and you can listen to the audio.

10 things to ask your doctor on your next visit.  I did this print interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  Not an exhaustive list but just some things I thought may help equip you for your next clinic visit.

One piece I’m quite proud of is from 2010 when I was interviewed by The New York Times about end-of-life conversations.  I really encourage you to read this one.

 

All these and more available in Dr. Hilden in the News.  Link right at the top of this page.

Learning about depression with psychiatrist Eduardo Colón

Dr. Eduardo Colon

Hey, everybody.   Check out this fact:  about 16 million people in the United States will experience an episode of depression every year.  That’s about 7% of the population.  By some estimates, depression is in the top 3 causes of disability (source:  World Health Organization).

To help us learn a bit more about this condition, I asked my colleague Dr. Eduardo Colón to be my in-studio guest on last Sunday’s Healthy Matters broadcast.  It was a great show!  Dr. Colón is the Chief of Psychiatry at HCMC and he has been on the show a few times over the years.  This is terrific since you will not find a wiser and kinder psychiatrist than he.  I really encourage you to listen to the podcast so you can hear Dr. Colón explain things much better than I can in this written form.  

You can learn more about Dr. Colón from this Minneapolis Star Tribune article which appeared shortly after he was named Chief of Psychiatry.  He gives an insider perspective on mental health care in our community that is worth a read.

I’ll use this blog post as a written companion of sorts for the audio podcast of that radio show.  I’ll try to encapsulate a few topics from the show and include some links for more information.

First of all, download the audio podcast here to listen to whenever you want.  Once at the podcast site, select Healthy Matters show #475, February 11, 2018).
