    Mayo Clinic Radio: Family medicine / aging research / varicose veins

The holidays often mean spending time with family. On this special holiday edition of Mayo Clinic Radio, listen to Mayo Clinic's multigenerational story about a father and daughter who are primary care physicians at Mayo Clinic. Dr. John Wilkinson, and his daughter, Dr. Elizabeth Cozine, join the program to talk family medicine — then and now. Two previously aired segments also will be revisited on the program. First, Dr. James Kirkland will share Mayo Clinic research on the aging process. Then, Mayo Clinic expert, Dr. Peter Gloviczki, will provide an overview of varicose veins. While often just a cosmetic concern, in some cases, varicose veins can cause pain and discomfort that requires treatment. You’ll hear about varicose vein treatment options from Dr. Glovczki, who also will share how practicing magic helped him become a physician.

Listen to the program on Saturday, Dec. 24, at 9:05 a.m. CST.
