As an Inside Edition anchor and longtime journalist, Deborah Norville has reported on a myriad of health-related stories throughout her career -- but which story has touched her the most?
Norville talks to Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, Chief Medical Officer of Pfizer, in this new sit-down interview for Starts With You -- a lifestyle website dedicated to the latest trends, inspirational ideas and suggestions for how to live a better life.
"Maybe the thing that was the most impactful for me was the email I got that was time-stamped 2:16 a.m. and it simply said, 'Thank you for the thank you power. I think you saved my life,'" she says about a memorable reader email she received about her 2007 book Thank You Power: Making the Science of Gratitude Work for You. "That gives me chills. That's pretty cool."
Norville's interview addresses the media's role in health awareness, and how people can empower themselves when it comes to their and their family's health.
"I think what we in the media can do is help others understand it is okay to be persistent. It is okay to be impolite, it is okay to insist on answers and it is imperative to be informed," she stresses to Dr. Lewis-Hall.
