A new real-life hospital drama
A new real-life hospital drama
“NY Med,” ABC, July 10
“NY Med,” a documentary series from ABC, takes viewers inside one of New York’s most prestigious hospitals, NewYork-Presbyterian. The eight-episode series, a follow-up to “Boston Med” and “Hopkins,” focuses on doctors, nurses, employees and patients at two of the hospital’s units, the Columbia University and Weill Cornell medical centers. Heart surgeon Mehmet Oz is among the doctors featured on the show, but producers say the series is more than a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a famous talk-show host. “Medicine is a universal subject. At some point in our lives we or those we love will become patients for one reason or another,” said executive producer Terry Wrong. “This series takes you behind the curtain to learn about those we depend on to fix us, and how sometimes, they just can’t.” “NY Med” debuts Tuesday at 10 p.m.
Beat the heat with summer training
Runner’s World, July
“Less does more.” That’s the message in Runner’s World’s guide to maintaining your workout through the dog days of summer. Instead of lamenting Washington’s swampiness (ugh, the humidity) or your lack of time (yay, barbecue!), the magazine advises using summer as an excuse to streamline your workouts. Tips, which are geared for runners but can apply to athletes across the workout spectrum, include “Go Fast” (increased pace, shorter workouts) and “Get Consistent” (important advice regardless of the weather). Find more advice and sample workouts in the July issue of the magazine.
