March has definitely blown in like a lion here in the Northeast. Cold and windy.

At 8AM, Dr. Joseph Vassalotti, a nephrologist and Chief Medical Officer of the National Kidney Foundation as we talk about this very important organ.

March happens to be colon cancer prevention month. One disturbing trend we have been seeing is the rice of colon cancer in younger people than we usually screen for this disease. Join me as I speak with Gina Neri, a colon cancer survivor and mother of three and Dr. Jerald Wishner, MD, the director of the Institute of Robotic and Minimally Invasive Surgery at Northern Westchester Hospital about what its like to be be young, pregnant, and find out you have colon cancer.
