    Mayo Clinic Radio: Guide to raising a healthy child / spondylolisthesis / women who snore and cardiac risk

From picky eaters to poor sleepers, raising a child can be an adventure. A new book, "Mayo Clinic Guide to Raising a Healthy Child," offers tips for parenting during the preschool and elementary school years. Drawing from the expertise of multiple Mayo Clinic experts, the book covers a wide range of topics, including feeding a picky eater, sleep problems, bullying, mental health, and treating common illnesses and injuries.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Angela Mattke, a pediatrician at Mayo Clinic Children's Center and the book's editor, will share tips for raising a healthy child. Also on the program, Dr. Brett Freedman, a Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeon, will explain treatment options for the common cause of back pain, spondylolisthesis. And Dr. Virend Somers, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist, will explain why women who snore may be at greater risk for heart disease.
