This week: Identifying concussions, macrobiotic diets, and grief

Jun 8, 2017

An Upstate scientist has found a way to identify when a person has a concussion and predict how long their recovery will take -- using a simple saliva test.

Frank Middleton works with a new class of molecules called micro RNA, in collaboration with Dr. Steven Hicks, an Upstate graduate working at Penn State Health in Hershey, Pa. The pair are working toward creating a simple test -- similar to the swab that's used for a rapid strep test. They discuss their work on this week’s show.

Also on the show: grief and loss, and macrobiotic diets.

Join us this Sunday, June 11 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for "HealthLink on Air."
