HealthBeat Podcast  Help with Podcast

Welcome to HHS HealthBeat. Launched on July 11, 2005, this service provides health promotion and disease prevention tips 5 days a week in audio and text formats.

  • Consumers—choose a HealthBeat tip below to listen. Be sure to visit the Take the Next Step link, too, because it provides more information to help you take action to improve your health.
  • Radio stations and other media—you can download tips for broadcast use. Please attribute HealthBeat tips to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

You will need an audio player to listen to the tip. Each MP3 audio file is 59 seconds long and about 1 megabyte in size.

Documents in PDF format require the Adobe Acrobat Reader®. If you experience problems with PDF documents, please download the latest version of the Reader®.
