Your Doctor (SAT-7 ARABIC)
Displaced from their homes and often unable to access healthcare, refugees are especially vulnerable to an array of physical and mental health problems. Your Doctor helps them find healing through a series of short medical information segments. The program is presented by Dr. Hany Keylada, an expert on refugee issues who has served on the medical front line in war-torn Syria and Iraq.
In each bite-size episode of Your Doctor, Dr. Keylada teaches viewers the basics of how to identify and treat certain conditions. He presents information on first aid and dealing with emergency healthcare needs, as well as educating refugees on disease prevention and protection. The segments are also covering mental health issues and a range of medical topics that impact people’s everyday lives, such as blood pressure and cholesterol, the respiratory system and the digestive system.
