This Week on Sound Medicine — Jan. 17

The program:

Elbert Huang, M.D., M.P.H., assistant professor of general internal medicine at the University of Chicago Diabetes Research and Training Center, will explain his study predicting a major increase in the number and cost of diabetes cases.

J. Allan Hobson, M.D., professor emeritus of psychiatry with the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School, will discuss why he compares dreaming to a morning jog, a way for the brain to warm up and prepare for the coming day.

Lucy King, M.D., clinical professor emeritus of psychiatry at Indiana University School of Medicine, will discuss her historical research tracing the work of some of the nation’s earliest women doctors.

Sound Medicine will continue the series on prayer and patient care with 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.

In this week’s Sound Medicine “Checkup,” Jeremy Shere, Ph.D., will explore medical students and needlestick injuries.
