11am

A recent investigation into several generic dietary supplement brands found gross misrepresentations in labeling. Many supplements did not even contain the ingredients they advertised. In this hour of Wellness Wednesday, we’ll talk about how to know what’s what among supplements: which are worth it, and which might be downright dangerous. We’ll also learn why it’s getting harder to die in the U.S., and how to get the support you need for end-of-life care.

Guests

  • Dr. David Seres, director of  Medical Nutrition, at Columbia University’s Institute of Human Nutrition
  • Adam Singer, assistant policy analyst for the RAND corporation
  • Pat Krebs, system director of chaplaincy at Mount Carmel Health Systems
  • Rev. Sam Ross, chaplain at Mount Carmel Health Systems
