Wellness Wednesday: Drowning Myths, Body Electric, Men's Health


In the movies it's easy to spot someone drowning; they're flailing their arms and yelling for help. In real life, people often drown silently, and within help's reach. This hour, we'll learn what signs really mean danger. Then we'll hear about a new electronic implant that aides in the detection of organ transplant rejection, and we'll celebrate Men's Health Week.
