May is Haitian Heritage Month! In honor of this month, we wanted to highlight Dr. Marie-Louise Jean-Baptiste who is involved with a Haitian language radio show broadcast Saturday mornings from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. in partnership with UDH (Universities de Haiti). Entitled “Health Corner,” the show is geared toward addressing health issues in the Haitian community and is broken into three segments.

During the first part of the show, Dr. Jean-Baptiste provides a small editorial up front where she asks listeners to consider what they have done well for themselves during the week. The second part addresses a specific health issue in an educational manner such as blood pressure, diabetes or mental health. She also provides information about health insurance and navigating the health system. The last segment includes time for Q&A where callers are able to call-in to ask specific questions. “Many Haitians listen to the radio as a source for their news,” said Dr. Jean-Baptiste. “This radio show gives me an opportunity to provide reliable health education and awareness to the community.” Health Corner is broadcast entirely in Haitian Creole on WNTN 1550 AM.
