"Be Heard": 4th Street Forum | Bad Habits, Medical Costs, and Individual Responsibility

Listen: With the debate on health care getting so much attention these days, the discussion about lifestyle and preventative measures is quietly gaining steam. Problems like childhood diabetes, heart disease, and obesity are taking a toll on the collective health of our country. So what should be done? How much can the government do? And how much of the responsibility lies with us? This week, hear from the 4th Street Forums distinguished guests panelists, including Jane Morley Kotchen (Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health at the Medical College of Wisconsin), Chris Ahmuty (Executive Director of  the American Cilvil Liberties Union of Wisconsin), Kevin Izard (Assistant Professor of Family and Community Medicine at  the Medical College of Wisconsin, Director of  the Family House, and Vice President of  the Wisconsin Academy of Family Physicians), Raymond Zastrow (President of  QuadMed, LLC and QuadMed Corporate Health Services)

Catch this episode of 4th Street Forum on Friday at 10PM and Sunday morning at 9am on Milwaukee Public Television (Channel 10.1).

Next week, "No Place to Run: Sexual Abuse at Home." Forty-four percent of sexual assault and rape victims are children younger than eighteen. The impacts on victims last a lifetime. Can we effectively slow the abuse?
