Raising Awareness One Show at a Time
Whether it’s a rare disease, allergy, or surgery, the Balancing Act explores a variety of health topics to raise awareness and help those in need. Find out more about the rare hormonal disorder called Cushing’s Syndrome and the future of clinical trials. We’ll hear from one brave woman who is not only fighting, the disease but also making strides as she raises awareness and helps other who are also suffering. Also on the show, Michele Cassalia with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, arms you with knowledge on potentially dangerous food allergies, their triggers, and how to manage them. Lastly, tune in to learn why doctors are performing surgeries in Puerto Rico. Dr. Luis Almodovar and Dr. Hilton Franqui Rivera, both from San Juan, Puerto Rico, join us to talk about why you should consider having your surgery done in Puerto Rico.
