He reflected on 2020—his last full year in health care.

“It’s the worst year. It’s the most unbelievable, nightmarish year. It’s a year where every day seems the same. It’s the year with incredible strain on a health care—on everybody’s health care—system as well as everybody’s mental health,” Silva says.

He explains the medical professional probably have not experienced such a year since the polio era or possibly during the Spanish Flu pandemic more than a century ago.

Besides Silva, “Pulse on Health” offers a Q&A session with Chief Medical Officer Dr. Zandra Kelley as well as Drs. Cara Smith and Lance Braye regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and vaccinations.

Future programs cover topics such as sports medicine, women’s healthcare as well as a regular “Ask A Doc” segment where one of the GLFHC physicians answers questions on a specific health topic. “Pulse On Health” airs Sunday mornings at 7, here on 97.9 WHAV.
