SVHC Launches Vermont Medical Weekly Video Program

BENNINGTON—February 5, 2021—Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) will launch a new weekly interactive digital show called Vermont Medical Weekly with Trey Dobson, MD.

Each week, Dr. Dobson will discuss current healthcare topics with a guest or guests as well as answer questions posted by virtual attendees. The show will air at 2 p.m. on Wednesdays starting February 10.

“Throughout the pandemic, Southwestern Vermont Health Care has worked to keep community members and area health care workers informed through a weekly e-newsletter and regular video updates,” said Trey Dobson, MD, Southwestern Vermont Medical Center’s (SVMC) chief medical officer and the host of the show. “These efforts have received a great response, and we are developing Vermont Medical Weekly based on feedback to further enhance our connections to people in our region.” 

Vermont Medical Weekly will be available to view on area public access television stations and on the health system’s, CAT-TV’s, and Greater Northshire Access Television’s (GNAT-TV) Facebook pages.
