Health highlights & how to be a smart health news consumer


The year 2016 was full of developments in the world of health -- including some health studies that contradicted each other. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take care," Hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Scott Hensley, the host of NPR's health blog “Shots,” about some of the most important health stories of the year, and how to sort through conflicting medical news.

More of this interview can be heard in a special one-hour episode of "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6 a.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
