The Academy of Medicine Education Foundation or AMEF as it is known and The Academy of Medicine of Cleveland & Northern Ohio (AMCNO) currently sponsor an award-winning radio program, Healthlines, broadcast on WCLV, 104.9 FM . AMEF’s mission is to enhance healthcare through education of the medical profession and the community. AMEF and the physician members of the AMCNO reaffirm their commitment to the community through their participation in the Healthlines program. Healthlines is an important outreach service provided by AMCNO to the Northeast Ohio community. Healthlines offers a prime radio spot every other week where physician members can discuss important and up-to-date topics with the general public. Healthlines has been providing this community service for more than forty years.

Healthlines' host, Dr. Anthony Bacevice, MD, and past AMCNO president (2009-10), utilizes his extensive medical background to interview physician member guests on a wide range of topics.

Three segments, approximately three minutes each, are taped in one 30-minute session at the WCLV studios located in Cleveland. The segments use a question-and-answer format with a topic selected by the physician. Telephone interviews with the host may also be arranged. Segments are broadcast on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of a scheduled week at 5:45 p.m. The program is also available as an audio stream. Click here to listen to some of our previous guests
