Wellness Wednesday: Friends and Hearts, Brain Scans, Concussions

11 am

Friends always have your back, and, as it turns out, your heart-- in more ways than one. We'll discuss the links between friendship and heart health. Then it's a look at technology to predict who's at risk for mental illness, and which treatments are likely to help. And we'll learn why rest is not always best when it comes to concussion recovery.
