This is a special show for the 2 Boomer Broads podcast. I (Rebecca) had the opportunity to interview award-winning singer Patti LaBelle for my blog BabyBoomster.com
Patti is working with Pfizer on a campaign called “All About Your Boom™” to promote awareness of pneumococcal pneumonia for Baby Boomers. It’s an important discussion because Baby Boomers over 65 are 13 times more susceptible to the disease than people under 50. It’s also deadly.
My interview with Patti LaBelle is short and to be honest, I did it on my phone so the sound isn’t perfect but I did my best to fix it.
Watch Patti’s video “All About Your Boom™” below where she sings her hit song “New Attitude.”
Patti LaBelle was joined in the interview by Dr. Vincenza Snow who offered her professional insights and knowledge about the disease and how it can affect you and those you love.
The 2 Boomer Broads hope that you will seriously consider getting the pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine if you are over 65 or have a chronic condition that suppresses your immune system. We also encourage you to get your flu shot early because the flu can escalate to pneumonia, especially if it isn’t taken care of immediately.
Please visit your doctor regularly to prevent diseases that are common for Baby Boomers, eat nutritious food, exercise, and do all you can to stay healthy.
I want to thank Pfizer for giving me the opportunity to interview Patti LaBelle and Dr. Snow and to learn more about this important campaign. I urge you to share this information with everyone you know who will benefit.
