    Mayo Clinic Radio: Let’s Run / Prenatal Care / Shingles

The beginning of summer often motivates people to try running for the first time or to start running again after a layoff. According to a survey by the National Sporting Goods Association, more than 60 million people went running or jogging in 2015. On this week's Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Ed Laskowski, co-director of Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center, will have tips on how to get started with a running routine, as well as the pros and cons of interval training. Also on the program, Mayo Clinic obstetrician Dr. Yvonne Butler Tobah will discuss advances in prenatal care, including Mayo Clinic's novel approach — dubbed OB Nest — for women with low-risk pregnancies. And, Mayo Clinic family medicine specialist Dr. Elizabeth Cozine will explain the viral infection known as shingles.

Listen to the program on Saturday, June 18, at 9:05 a.m. CDT.
