This week: Sleep during stroke recovery, mass shootings, Long QT Syndrome

Problems with sleep can worsen a person's health in the year after a stroke.

Discussing their research on this topic, physical therapist George Fulk, a professor of physical therapy in the Upstate College of Health Professions, and nurse Karen Klingman, the associate dean and associator professor in the Upstate College of Nursing, are featured on this episode of “HealthLink on Air.” They explain their recommendations for those who are recovering from a stroke, and why sleep is so important for recovery.

Also this week, psychiatrist Ronald Pies discusses mass shootings and mental health. And, pharmacology researcher David Auerbach explains his investigation into electrical disturbances in the brain and the heart. Listen this Sunday, August 2 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for "HealthLink on Air."
