Populating Our Podcast Series: Health Science Starts Here

Health Science Starts HereListen up! Salus now has its very own podcast series. Titled Health Science Starts Here, the series features the latest stories and events happening to Salus students, alumni, faculty, staff and the communities we serve.

Two episodes are already available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts, as well as on the University website.

The premier two-part episode first discussed Seeing Eye Dogs and the training process in honor of National Seeing Eye Day and The Seeing Eye’s ® 90th anniversary. Located in Morristown, N.J., The Seeing Eye ®, Inc. is one of the largest guide dog schools in the U.S.  The second part – to be aired at a later date - will more specifically describe Salus University’s Orientation and Mobility (O&M) program, which teach O&M specialists to work with children and adults with blindness or vision impairments to learn critical skills to remain oriented in their environment as well as specific mobility skills in order to travel safely, efficiently and as independently as possible.

Mittelman PodcastThe newest episode – which was released in conjunction with Tinnitus Awareness Week earlier this month - discusses Tinnitus – the perception of noise or ringing in the ears – with Dr. Rebecca Blaha. As a clinical educator at the Pennsylvania Ear Institute and instructor in the University’s Osborne College of Audiology, she discussed not only how the condition is pronounced – many people get it wrong – but also  what it is, and the most beneficial treatments.

Additional episodes in the works are "Transitioning into Graduate School" with Niki Mehta ‘20OD and "Centennial Celebration" with Salus president, Dr. Michael H. Mittelman.
