Millennial Health Life Effects

    • Science

In this episode, we look at the millennial generation’s unique relationship with health. From chat rooms to social media to wearable tech, millennials are used to having boundless information just a click away. So how does their post-internet world connect to millennials’ tendency of taking health matters into their own hands?
To answer these questions, host Sara Ivry is joined by a Stephen Fiskell, a millennial patient, and Dr. Gol Golshani, a millennial doctor specializing in internal medicine. Over the past few years, Stephen has taken a radical—and creative—approach to improving his health by tracking everything from his eating habit to his sleep. Doctor Gol Golshani also joins the conversation. As a millennial herself, Dr. Golshani has a multifaceted understanding of how her generation views their own health and engages with the healthcare system.
