Health First Is Sound Science Podcast, Features Heart Specialists Dr. Kevin Campbell, Dr. Matthew Campbell
Brevard’s leading health system aims to meet people where they are with engaging and practical health information. Topics range from heart procedures to anxiety and, yes, COVID-19.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Health First specialists are waiting to talk to you – on your walk, in your car, or wherever you listen.
Leading Brevard Health System has branched out into audio production with “Putting Your Health First,” a bi-weekly podcast that arrives for free on your smartphone or tablet wherever you get podcasts (Apple, Google Play, or Spotify).
The first program featured Dr. Jeffrey Stalnaker, Chief Medical Officer of Health First, discussing the latest news on COVID-19.
The second program features two heart specialists named Campbell.

“It’s kind of funny because the other Dr Campbell is a rather tall gentleman, and I’m a short gentleman,” says Dr Kevin Campbell, “so I always ask, ‘Are you looking for the little Dr Campbell or the tall Dr. Campbell? »
The doctors go on to discuss so-called “silent heart attacks,” risk demographics and symptoms, modern diagnostics, and life-saving — and life-enhancing — surgeries that are minimally invasive.
Heart attacks are a major concern for many people, says Dr Kevin Campbell, but they are vascular in nature – there are also structural and valvular deficiencies that are also part of heart disease, and this is where the network of Health First specialists and surgeons shines.
“I agree,” says Dr. Matthew Campbell.
“Symptoms can sometimes overlap for two completely different disease processes, but the good news is that the Health First team has all the tools in the toolbox. We are able to diagnose what is going on…and then come up with the treatment plan for almost anything that is going on in the diagnoses. We are able to pull together our strengths and make the right decisions at the right time for patients here at Brevard.
And who should care most about assessing their risk? Dr. Kevin Campbell has this warning for women.
“Women are often undertreated and underserved when it comes to heart disease, and it is imperative that they understand what their risks are and understand that the number 1 killer of women today is not breast cancer or cancer of the uterus, that’s heart trouble.
The podcast is a collaborative effort of Health First providers and leaders. Its creation and continued production was a labor of love for Marketing Director Jennifer MacKendree.
“We want listeners here and nationally to hear us and think about wellness the way our experts think. At Health First, our goal is to educate the community to be proactive with their health rather than reactive,” says MacKendree.
