Vonda White, M.D., director of the Performance and Research Initiative for Master Athletes at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, will explain her recent study which found that playing high impact sports like basketball, running and volleyball actually helps strengthen old bones.
Also this week, Sound Medicine will air a new installment of “Grace Notes,” a series of first-person essays about end-of-life issues written and read by Larry Cripe, M.D., associate professor of medicine and director of palliative care services at Indiana University Hospital.
