Regarding "The Broken Hip" -- A Novel "Digital Storytelling Project" from KERA (Encore Presentation)

Jan 5, 2016

On this installment of ST on Health, we listen back to fine show from the summer of 2014. At that time, guest host John Schumann spoke with Lauren Silverman, the Health, Science, and Technology Reporter at KERA, which is the NPR member-station in Dallas. Silverman -- as she tells us in detail -- helped to create an impressively researched and decidedly multimedia "digital storytelling project" at the KERA website dealing with hip fractures among the elderly, in both the Greater Dallas region and the United States more generally. This project was recently honored with a few different broadcasting awards, and so we're pleased to re-air the program today.
