North Carolina Medical Board Launches MedBoard Matters Podcast

North Carolina Medical Board (NCMB) has announced the launch of its podcast, MedBoard Matters. The podcast will highlight important issues in medicine and medical regulation. The goal is to present compelling content in an easy-to-digest and enjoyable format. The very first episode is on suicide prevention awareness. Jean Fisher Brinkley had a great and uplifting conversation about a very heavy topic with Dr. Christine Moutier, Chief Medical Officer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Dr. Moutier discusses ways to overcome the stigma associated with mental health issues in medical professionals and strategies and resources for getting help – as well as what to do if a colleague is in crisis.

The episode has been published in recognition of Physician Suicide Awareness Day, September 17th.  Here is a link to the episode: https://www.buzzsprout.com/1230689/5455090. Search for “MedBoard Matters” on your favorite podcast platform to be notified of future episodes.

If NCMGMA members have questions they have always wanted to ask the Board, or ideas for specific topics for future episodes on MedBoard Matters, we would love to get feedback! Send suggestions and questions to podcast@ncmedboard.org.
