With a line up of experts in the field, BritAsia Health Show aims to ensure that the best information gets straight to the people who are currently feeling lost in their health journey.

Dr Jack Darby, Presenter of BritAsia Health Show, said, “At just 22, I had crippling anxiety and depression, was putting on weight and feeling ever more helpless and miserable. I was put on medications but otherwise forgotten about. I realised I had to make a change as I couldn’t go on like that. So I used my medical and sport science knowledge to get into a healthier lifestyle, got into shape and I’m delighted to say I haven’t needed those medications since. So many people are struggling with the same things I was struggling with and can’t find the help they need to get out of it. Since graduating from medical school I have been using my knowledge to help people change their lifestyles for the better. Now I am thrilled to bring that knowledge to the BritAsia Health Show and provide the help and advice I so wished I had at 22.”

Tony Shergill, CEO of BritAsia TV, said, “With podcasts being an extremely popular platform, we felt that there was a need for us to create BritAsia Podcast, in order to provide a new level of entertainment for our viewers. We are very excited to have Raj and Pablo join the team, and we feel that they will be a great asset in connecting and entertaining our audience with all of the latest Bollywood news. Sunny & Shay’s show on engaging topics will divide opinions and bring controversial topics to fruition, and we hope that our listeners will engage with the show. Due to Covid-19, health has become paramount, and so, ‘BritAsia Health Show’, presented by Dr Jack Darby will educate our listeners on their health, during this uncertain time.”
