Bring energy efficiency close to home

This Cold House

Here in Rhode Island, the gas or oil you burn to heat your home probably accounts for 1/3 of all your CO2 emissions, the same emissions that are causing climate change. But what else can we do? We need to stay warm in the winter, don’t we?

For this podcast episode, The MHC Group’s Megan Hall turned the microphone on her own family as she navigated the process of making their home more energy-efficient.

“This Cold House” aired on The Public’s Radio on October 8, 2018. You can listen here.

Neurostories Podcast

Obstetricians treat pregnant women. Neurologists treat chronic migraines. But who treats pregnant women with chronic migraines? The answer is often unclear.

To address this gap in medical knowledge, The MHC group helped Rhode Island Hospital Neurologist Dr. Julie Roth make a series of podcasts.

“The Push,” uses patient stories and interviews with experts to describe the treatment options for pregnant women with epilepsy, chronic migraine, stroke and other neurological issues.
