This week: foot problems, hot flashes, and a dengue fever vaccine trial

This week on HealthLink on Air: Dr. Scott Van Valkenburg discusses common foot problems -- plus, discussion on hot flashes and heart disease in women.

Also on the show, central New Yorkers have an opportunity to participate in a study designed to help find a vaccine for dengue fever, a mosquito-born disease that affects many parts of the developing world and parts of the United States.

Dr. Mark Polhemus of Upstate Medical University’s Center for Global Health and Translational Science, is recruiting volunteers for the study, which will last about 20 months and include up to 24 medical visits.
