Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Food Banks (right), checks out the produce while she talks with employees at the Mid-Ohio Food Bank in Grove City, just south of Columbus.

At the start of August, the Ohio Association of Foodbanks appealed to Governor DeWine for aide with shortages in their supplies. With demand for the banks’ services increasing, but supplies dwindling, a solution is needed and soon.

Today on Wellness Wednesday, we’re looking at these food shortages and the effects on our communities. We’re also discussing the relationship between mental health and psoriasis, and potential hair loss treatment.

Guests:

  • Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, Executive Director, Ohio Association of Foodbanks
  • Dr. Larry Green, dermatologist, George Washington University School of Medicine
  • Maksim Plikus, Professor of Developmental and Cell Biology, UC Irvine
