Tommorow, November 3rd, on the Dr. Ira Breite Show
There is enough talk radio out there telling you whom to vote for. This show offers the 4% of you who haven't decided no new advice! But we have an excellent "presidential" show planned where we will be talking about the health of President's throughout the history of the country and how their diseases have affected the course of American History. From William Henry Harrison, who died after only 34 days in office, to JFK, who had a medical problem way different from what tabloid readers might immediately think, listening to this show is going to be one of the great Doctor Radio entertainment and learning experiences. I can't wait to find out the answers!!
Joing me will be Mr. Steven Lee Carson, Presidential Historian, who is currently at the Woodrow Wilson House in Washington, DC as well as Dr. Frank Schmalstieg, MD PhD, a Professor of Pediatrics at UT Galveston, who has written about the medical issues of Abraham Lincoln during the time of the Gettysberg Address.
I also worry about the health of imaginary presidents as well, and was always a bit of a fan of the West Wing. Therefore it is really excited that we will be having Dr. Oded Gonen of NYU/Langone live on the air tommorow to talk about the latest research in Multiple Sclerosis, the disease Martin Sheen's character Jedidiah Bartlett suffered from and the MOST COMMON autoimmune neurlogical disease, primarily affecting women of childbearing age! You do not want to miss this.
Finally, we will end up with ask Dr. Ira, where I will answer any question that the listener's may have on any medical topic at all. We will also go over some interesting news items and you emails. Of course, you can email anything to me and we will try to get it on the air!
