Vermont Gov. Phil Scott to seek fourth term

The Health Show #1310

Advances in medical technology have made it possible to screen children for a huge number of conditions by the time they are two.  That’s two DAYS.  On today’s Health Show we’ll talk to a clinical geneticist about the advances in newborn screening for disease.

We’ll also hear from the N-I-H about screening for cancer in children and adults...and how they must balance the pros and cons of these tests.  And we’ll hear commentary from a young woman about a brave young member of her family with terminal cancer.
