Episode Summary

EDIT
Original air date: 6/5/2012 Macular Degeneration: A woman wakes up and finds the building outside her window looks like it’s “bending and bowing.” She’s developed age-related macular degeneration (AMD), an increasingly common eye disease that mostly affects people in their 60’s and beyond. Meet this patient and her ophthalmologist, and find out how AMD can be detected and treated. Beneficial Breastfeeding: NYC’s Department of Health and Human Hygiene wants hospitals to encourage new moms to breastfeed their babies and discourage them from using formula, when possible. Why is breastfeeding so good for infants and what are some of the obstacles young mothers encounter with it? Host Monica Sweeney, MD, talks with Maureen Liberth, a clinical nurse specialist from Lutheran Medical Center, and Marsha Page, who’s breastfed her two children. Creativity and Mental Illness: Can painting, music, writing and any and all forms of artistic expression help people cope with mental illness? In Sunset Park, a program run by the Resource and Wellness Center of Baltic Street AEH (Advocacy, Employment, Housing) believes passionately that creativity is a crucial part of treatment.
