In 2019, millennials are the largest living adult generation, and by 2020, nearly half of the U.S. workforce will be millennials, making millennial health and how they consume healthcare an important issue in the healthcare landscape in our country. Second Opinion: Millennial Health airs Thursday, October 17 at 8:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Panelists: Louis J. Papa, MD, Professor of Clinical Medicine, University of Rochester Medical Center; Beth Hoffman, MPH, PhD Student, University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health; Angelique Harris, PhD, Associate Professor, Social and Cultural Studies, Marquette University.

The importance of being an advocate for your own health care is what WXXI’s Emmy-nominated national health care series, Second Opinion, is all about. Each episode features a patient who tells his/her own story about diagnosis and treatment with primary care physicians and specialists discussing the case with the patient in a way never-before-seen on television. Season 16 takes a deep dive into ten topics including depression, childhood vaccines, hypothyroidism, and addiction. Featuring field production, a live studio audience, and passionate panel discussions, Second Opinion is a trusted and accurate source for medical information.
