Tonight’s Healthstyles program focuses on “Wellness Week” from September 17th to the 22nd. Simone-Marie Meeks, Director of Community and Legislative Outreach for the New York Academy of Medicine, talks with me about the United Nations’ decision to focus on preventing and managing chronic diseases as a global health problem and what NYC is doing to improve its own rate of non-communicable diseases. You’ll also hear what everyone can do for themselves and their communities to live healthier lives. Tonight, on WBAI, 99.5 FM from 11:00 to 11:30.
