Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 8, 2009
Frankly Speaking About Cancer with The Wellness Community, a weekly internet talk radio show aimed at informing and inspiring listeners to live well with cancer, has been awarded a Bronze Medal in the Health/Medical category by the New York Festivals Radio Programming and Promotions Awards.
For 52 years the New York Festivals Radio Programming and Promotions Awards has recognized The World's Best Work in radio broadcasting (http://www.newyorkfestivals.com). Each year they receive entries from radio stations, networks and independent producers from over 30 countries. The 2009 Grand Jury, comprised of top level industry professionals from 5 continents and over 25 countries, donated their time to the judging process and listened to hundreds of entertaining, provoking and informative work produced by individuals and organizations from around the world.
Frankly Speaking About Cancer with The Wellness Community launched in September of 2008 and was the first internet talk radio show on the VoiceAmerica™ Talk Radio Network's Health & Wellness Channel to focus specifically on how to live a better life with cancer. Since then, listeners have learned a broad range of practical tips from how to manage cancer treatment side effects, to understanding Social Security Disability Insurance. Much of the program's success can be attributed to the featured patients, physicians, researchers, social workers and caregivers with whom listeners can connect and draw inspiration. Future episodes will include topics on prostate cancer, dying with dignity and much more.
