Tomorrow on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 199: Doctor Radio

Tomorrow is our Thanksgiving day special on the Doctor Ira Breite Internal Medicine Show on Sirius and XM's Doctor Radio!  Melanie Kron, my producer, has put together an amazing list of interesting guests as we all get ready for the holidays.  

We're going to start off (8AM EST) by talking about food: specifically what the Colonists really ate there in Plymouth Rock, and its not canned cranberries and stuffing!  Joining me on the phone will be Susan Dosier, the former food editor for Southern Living Magazine and the author of "Colonial Cooking: Exploring History Through Simple Recipes," as well as Mary Gunderson, a culinary historian and the author of "American Indian Cooking Before 1500: Exploring History Through Simple Recipes" and "The Food Journal of Lewis and Clark: Recipes for an Expedition." The big question of many interesting ones: Did the colonists eat turkey?  Tune in and find out.  To satisfy your craving for colonial information to thrill your guests at Thanksgiving, call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!!!

After this, we are going to switch back to the "Doctor" part of Doctor Radio.  We will be talking with Award winning Photographer and Basket Weaver Terrol Dew Johnson, who is a member of the Tohono Odham Tribe located south of Phoenix, Arizona.  Mr. Odham is currently on a 2,500 mile walk from Maine to Southern Arizona where he is visiting numerous Native American communities to promote traditional native foods and fitness.  This has been a big issue in the Native American Community.  If you have any questions about this, call us here at doctor radio at 1-877-NYU-DOCS

After the break, we are going to continue our discussion of Native American Health, this time with Dr. Patricia Nez Henderson and Dr. Jeffrey Henderson, the Vice President and President of the Black Hills Center for American Indian Health in Rapid City, South Dakota.   Drs. Henderson and I will be joined by Leo Nolan III, a Senior Policy Analyst for External Affairs for the Indian Health Service of the US Department of Health and Human Services.  We'll be talking about Native American Health Issues from Pilgrim Times until the present day.

If you, or a loved one, is Native American, now would be a great time to call and have any of your questions answered on health issues in Native Americans: 1-877-NYU-DOCS
