FT. LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – Savvy Broward County insiders who want the latest health information know that one of the best places to find it is at the Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center located on the campus of Nova Southeastern University (NSU).

That’s because the Alvin Sherman Library now boasts a collection of more than 300 episodes of the award-winning, NSU-produced, local television show. Dateline: Health is available on DVD to the public as part of The Lippman Collection.

Each 30-minute episode – hosted by Fred Lippman, R.Ph., Ed.D., Chancellor of NSU’s Health Professions Division (HPD) – provides the latest information about contemporary health care issues discussed by health care experts, researchers and policymakers.

In 1998, Lippman created Dateline: Health, which is written and produced within HPD and filmed within NSU’s Office of Innovation and Information Technology. Since then, the show has received multiple awards and was recently chosen as a Telly Award winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for excellence in the educational video/film category.

In support of NSU’s 2020 vision and core values, and to honor Lippman’s service to NSU and the surrounding community, NSU President George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., established The Lippman Collection in June to house Dateline: Health’s current and future episodes.

Currently available Dateline: Health episode topics include everything from cardiovascular disease prevention, to geriatric health care, to new cancer treatments, to tooth reconstruction, to nutrition and dietary supplements, to pediatric care, and much more. Library patrons can borrow ten (10) Dateline: Health DVDs at a time for up to three weeks.

To view a listing of the entire Dateline: Health series, visit www.nova.edu/library/datelinehealth, or check out the collection in person at NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library, located at 3100 Ray Ferrero Jr. Boulevard in Davie.
