Fort Myers, Florida, February 6, 2021:
Millennium Physician Group has created a new destination for Southwest Florida to get accurate and actionable COVID-19 information by launching a weekly TV news report called Destination Health, airing every Saturday, during NBC2’s 6 pm newscast. The video segments, produced by an award-winning team with more than two decades combined medical reporting experience, present timely health, wellness, and medical information with a focus on all aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“There is so much misinformation out there, especially regarding COVID-19,” says Millennium Chief Medical Officer Alejandro Perez-Trepichio, MD. “The information is changing so rapidly, it’s hard for people to know what’s true. We wanted to give everyone a place to find accurate information they could trust. At the end of the day, it’s important for the community to have a good source of reliable medical information, and this partnership allows us to provide that.”
Local physicians and medical experts from Millennium Physician Group as well as throughout Florida are featured in the Destination Health segments, reporting valuable information and insights about COVID-19, as well as bringing viewers inspiring stories from the frontlines of fighting this virus.
“We are thrilled to be working with the distinguished group of healthcare professionals at Millennium Physician Group,” says Vice President of News, Digital, Marketing and Production for Waterman Broadcasting of Florida Darrel Lieze-Adams. “Providing our community with vital health-related information is a long-standing pillar of our daily news coverage on NBC2. This partnership is a key element of continuing to build on that commitment.”
Millennium is not just coming to your TVs, but also to your radios and streaming devices. A second new destination for relevant health news is Destination Health Radio. Every week, host Michelle McCormick takes you on a healthcare journey, interviewing physicians, experts, and patients from across Florida in order to help listeners achieve their best health.
Brought to you by Millennium Physician Group, a new episode of Destination Health Radio broadcasts every Saturday on WOKV 104.5FM from 5 – 6 pm in Jacksonville, but you can listen to the podcast of the show anytime, anywhere by heading to destinationhealthradio.buzzsprout.com.
