One out of every four senior citizens contract multi-drug resistant infections, or superbugs, after a hospital stay.  In this week's "Issues of the Environment," WEMU's David Fair speaks with Dr. Lona Mody, Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan, on ways to resist these powerful bugs.


Ann Arbor's St. Joseph Mercy and University of Michigan hospitals are partnering in a nationwide cancer prevention study, and they'd like to enroll at least 500 Ann Arbor residents to participate. 

John Stout is Oncology Services director at St. Joseph Mercy.  He says this is a great opportunity to take part in an important long-term study.

Stout says to take part in the study you must be between the ages of 30 and 65 and never have been diagnosed with cancer.
