M.S. & Parkinson's

October 18, 2012    watch

Two big topics, one important hour. Tune in to Health Matters for a discussion around Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's. Hear from patients coping with these diseases who are vowing not to let their diagnosis slow them down. We explore why the MS rate is so high in the Inland Northwest and see how singing is helping Parkinson's sufferers feel better. From ways to cope to the race for cures, our panel weighs in and takes your calls.
