Monday, January 18th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!

Hello All. Happy Martin Luther King Day. We have an incredible holiday lineup planned for the show on Monday! Dr. Ronald Kotler, a pulmonologist and the author of "365 Ways to Get a Good Night's Sleep," will be joining us on the line to talk about some of the things you can do to sleep better every night. Dr. Kotler on diseases such as narcolepsy. If you've ever had a problem getting, or staying, asleep, you are going to want to hear what he has to say!

If you have any questions at all about how to sleep better, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Making sure everyone has appropriate healthcare is extremely important. Lynya Floyd, senior editor for health and relationships at Essence Magazine and Maimah Karmo, a founder of the Tiger Lily Foundation and the author of "How Breast Cancer Saved My Life," will join me to talk about some health problems that disproportionately affect African Americans: including breast cancer, colon cancer, and hypertension. You will want to hear Maimah's inspirational story.

Last week, my child managed to break his wrist (in two places!) Ah, the joys of basketball. Dr. Vonda Wright, an orthopedist who is the author of one of my favorite books, "Fitness After Forty," will be joining me to talk about the hard knocks, sprains and occasional indignities of sports. Learn what to do if you hurt yourself and how to avoid injury in the first place!
