This week: ADHD, malaria in Latin America, new end-of-life book

Mar 1, 2019

Some recent international research involving a scientist at Upstate Medical University is giving new insight into the biology behind attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

Stephen Faraone explains that certain genetic variants can increase a person's risk for developing ADHD. Faraone is a distinguished professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, and a professor of neuroscience and physiology. He and colleagues published their work in the journal Nature Genetics.

Also this week on “HealthLink on Air,” researcher Anna Stewart-Ibarra and medical student Dan Farrell discuss the malaria outbreak in Latin America, and medical ethicist, Dr. Gregory Eastwood shares his book about the end of life called "Finishing Our Story."

Tune in this Sunday, March 3 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on WRVO.
