inFocus: Managing your health

in focus health

There are always new studies about what you should think about when it comes to our health. Sometimes it’s information that conflicts with what you’ve been told all along or sometimes you hear something that you never knew applies to you and your family.

There is a lot to think about, which is where 22News inFocus comes in this week.

We’ll try to inform you on a few different health matters that are timely.

We’ll talk to a doctor about a recent mammography study that questions the benefits of screening. We’ll hear from another doctor who overcame leukemia and is a stem cell transplant survivor. We’ll also talk to experts about the #1 killer in women, caring for your skin and stress, we all have it, but how can we deal with it properly?

Join us Sunday at noon on 22News inFocus.
