This week: Gang violence, kidney stones, more

Gang-related violence has been a continual problem in impoverished inner-city neighborhoods throughout the United States. In Syracuse in 2010, a Community Trauma Response Team was established -- and appears to have helped to reduce gang-related gunshots and murders.

One of the team's founders, Timothy Jennings-Bey, provides an overview of the team's role and its importance in Syracuse on this week's "Healthlink on Air."

Also on the show, urologist Scott Wiener discusses diagnosis and treatment of kidney stones, and registered dietitian nutritionist Maria Erdman explains the impact of lung cancer on nutrition. Tune in this Sunday, November 17 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for more.
