HealthChangers

On the HealthChangers podcast, presented by Cambia Health Solutions, we share real stories of health care transformation, from those who are experiencing it and those helping to make health care more personalized. We aim to step back and see real people's stories at a personal level. We dive deep into specific health care topics, from the problems that health innovators are solving, to personal consumer stories and new technologies, and everything in between. In 2018 and 2019, HealthChangers Podcast was recognized as a finalist for best podcast in PR News’ Platinum Awards and a 2019 PR Daily Content Marketing Award for Brand Journalism.
