Aaron Carroll, M.D., M.S., associate professor of pediatrics and director of the Center of Health Policy and Professionalism Research at Indiana University School of Medicine, will assess the future effects of the health care reform legislation that is now law.

Robert Kaestner, Ph.D., professor of economics at the University of Illinois at Chicago, will discuss his recent study of the long term health benefits of female student athletes.

Timothy Church, M.D., MPH, Ph.D., a professor and researcher of health wisdom at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center at Louisiana State University, will explain his findings that moderate exercise can still have important benefits.

This week’s “Patient Listening” will be presented by Richard Frankel, Ph.D., professor of medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He will speak with two medical students who started a scholarship drive for a fellow classmate so he would not have to drop out of school and return to Kenya.
