Reverend Elizabeth Watson-Martin, MDiv, Vice President, Faith & Spirituality Integration at Texas Health Resources stops by to talk about the chaplaincy programs and how so many North Texas families have benefitted from these unsung heroes who may welcome a newborn into one family, and an hour later help another family say farewell to a loved one.

    There is an easily-preventable cancer that many people get, but with a simple, early diagnostic procedure, can be completely removed at the time of the procedure itself. Yet, 30-percent of North Texans don’t get this very important test. We are talking, of course, about colon cancer and colonoscopies. Dr. Amit Desai, Gastroenterologist at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas stops by to give us valuable information on how this disease has become more wide-spread among the younger population, increasing the importance of beginning testing sooner.

    It’s the Memorial Day holiday weekend and we’re on top of it with one of the big topics as summer officially begins: Protecting your skin.

Genetics now plays a key role in diagnosing these childhood issues, and is giving clinicians a big advantage in treating it. Dr. Saima Naeem Kayani, Pediatric Neurologist at Children’s Health and Assistant Professor at UTSW joins us with some invaluable information for parents facing this challenge.
