March 18, 2017 – Cancer Treatments

On Wellness Matters in March we will look at cancer treatments.

Cancer has had a major impact on society in the United States.   While there is still no cure for cancer, research has helped come up with new ways to fight it.   Using a person’s own DNA scientists and doctors can customize a course of treatment for those affected with advanced forms of cancer and advances in radiation technology have made it possible to be more precise when treating tumors or specific regions of the body.

Dr. Jeff Bird will be joined in studio by Dr. Salfi Ibrahim the director of the IU health precision genomics program at Ball Memorial Hospital to talk about their unique program.  We will take a tour of the new linear accelerator at the IU Health Ball Memorial Cancer Center with Radiation physicist Joe Butts and we will learn why colonoscopies are an important screening tool in the fight against colorectal cancer.

February 18, 2017 – Matters of the Heart

Kicking off the season will be matters of the heart. February is Heart Health month, after all.

Heart Disease is the number one cause of death in the United States, according to the American Heart Association, and one of the most widespread and costly health problems facing our nation. There are many types of heart disease, but according to the AMA, heart failure is one of the most common reasons for hospital admissions for older adults.

Dr. Jeff Bird will be joined in the studio by Dreu Doestler, Nurse Practitioner of the IU health Ball Memorial Heart and Lung Center, to talk about heart failure and what services are available though the Heart and Lung Center, which opened in the fall of 2016. WELLNESS MATTERS will also visit the IUBMH Cardiac Rehab program and facilities, learn about paramedicine, and offer up some low sodium diet tips.
