Online PR News – 08-February-2013 – PHOENIX, AZ – VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network, live internet talk radio broadcasting pioneer, is announcing that Former White House Physician, Retired Navy Admiral, and best-selling author of “The White House Doctor: My Patients Were Presidents – A Memoir”, Dr. Connie Mariano will be discussing the obesity in light of recent controversy over New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s health. Join her live tonight on her talk radio show, “House Calls”, on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel, as well as the Health and Wellness Channel on Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 4PM Pacific Time.

Dr. Connie’s summoned comments have been spreading like wildfire across the nation’s newsrooms. As a 2016 Presidential Republican Contender, Gov. Christie’s weight has raised some concern about his ability to survive a presidential term. Dr. Connie was sought out by media outlets, and asked for her opinion regarding Gov. Christie’s interview on “The Late Show with David Letterman”, in which he chatted fat jokes while indulging in a jelly doughnut. Dr. Connie addressed the issue as a physician – politics aside – stating that she was simply worried about his health, and that she would love to see him run for President, just in a healthier state. This has inspired

Dr. Connie to dedicate a segment of tonight’s show to obesity, and helping people that struggle with obesity to change their lives.

CNN, ABC, FOX, Good Morning America, The Huffington Post and several other news outlets have interviewed both Dr. Connie and Gov. Christie, and it has become an overnight battle of Gov. Christie’s defense and Dr. Connie’s concern.
Brad Meltzer, New York Times bestselling author and host of the History Channel series “Decoded”, will join Dr. Connie in the second half of her show to discuss presidential security, as well as former United States Secret Service Agent Robert DeProspero.
