This week: Physical therapy after COVID-19, death rate disparity, stressed kids

Physical therapist Zachary Boswell explains why physical therapy is often necessary for people who are recovering from a severe COVID-19 infection, on this week's "HealthLink on Air."

And, research shows COVID-19 death rates are higher among people who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. Dr. Margaret Turk from Upstate's department of physical medicine and rehabilitation and Scott Landes from Syracuse University's Aging Studies Institute at the Maxwell School tell about their study and why it's important.

Also on the show, child psychologist Anne Reagan goes over the warning signs that can help parents and caregivers recognize stress reactions in their babies, children and adolescents. Listen this Sunday, June 14 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for "HealthLink on Air."
