WebMD has launched its first original series, “WebMD’s Future of Health with Robin Roberts.”
Developed and produced in partnership with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts and her production company Rock’n Robin Productions, the series will aim to present stories at the forefront of medical breakthroughs, with a focus on individuals working to improve people’s lives. Topics will include 3D printing for prosthetics and organ transplantation, a new obesity treatment that could be an alternative to invasive gastric surgery, and a potentially transformative new technology that restores vision to the blind.
Currently, five episodes are planned, with each running for roughly five minutes. The episodes and all complementary content, including feature stories, slideshows, and extra videos, will be available on the series’ page on WebMD.com.
Here’s a trailer for the program:
