Med Students Biking for Global Health

A group of medical students from Ohio State University is biking its way across the country in an effort to draw attention to global health issues. OSU Medical School student Andy Wagner is co-founder of "Ride for World Health". He says the OSU students have joined with other students from eight other Medical Schools around the country to call attention to four major health problems: HIV and tuberculosis, women's health issues, proverty and health and access to health care in the United States. The group left San Fransisco last week heading for Washington, D.C. WOSU's Marilyn Smith caught up with Andy Wagner on his cell phone at a stop in Cedar City, Utah. You can hear their conversation.
