Maryann Napoli joins Healthstyles host Diana Mason to talk about health care issues she’s reported on recently for the Center for Medical Consumers, where she serves as Associate Director. These include an update on recent research that suggests that patients with terminal illnesses may live longer and have a higher quality of life if they are provided with palliative or comfort care; a new “decisional aid” to help women make important decisions about treatment for breast cancer; whether and when people with sinusitis should take antibiotics; and an update on whether and when to get bone density testing. You can listen to the program on WBAI-FM on March 22 at 1:00 PM or WXRM-FM on March 26 at 11:00 AM.
