How can we reduce the risk of preventable death?

Penn State

According to the National Safety Council, someone in the U.S. dies every four minutes from what is considered a "preventable death." Things like car accidents, choking, falls, etc. are all preventable, so how can people reduce their risk of these tragic events happening. 

This week on WRVO's health and wellness show, Take Care, hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Deborah Hersman, President and CEO of the National Safety Council, about preventable deaths and how we can lower our risk. 

You can hear more of this conversation on Take Care, WRVO's health and wellness show, Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
