This week: Genetic abnormalities, psychoanalytic theory and patient-centered research

Some genetic abnormalities can be detected during gestation, some are recognized upon birth and others may go undetected because disorders caused by genetic abnormalities range in their severity and impact.

Dr. Robert Lebel, director of medical genetics at Upstate Medical University, talks about genetic abnormalities, including those that are inherited and those that occur spontaneously. Lebel holds appointments in several departments, including pediatrics, medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pathology and ethics.

Also on this week’s show: concerns of older patients, plus psychoanalytic therapy. Join us Sunday, July 8 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on WRVO for "HealthLink on Air."
