Wellness Wednesday: Health Dollars, Binge Drinking, Doc Shortage

10:00

Most glossy college brochures don't include statistics on the school's rates of binge drinking, but the NIH says alcohol abuse on campuses is costing the country big time-- in dollars and in lives. This hour we'll look at how Universities are curbing the trend. We'll also take a look at the power of money to motivate good health habits, and the effect of the doctor shortage on the healthcare mandate.

Guests

  • Marc Mitchell, University of Toronto PhD candidate
  • Jenna Johnson, reporter, Washington Post
  • William Burke, Dean of the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, Dublin
