In January 2016, Mayo Clinic began conducting the National Health Check-Up — a survey conducted several times throughout the year to take the pulse of Americans on consumer health opinions and behaviors. The most recent results revealed that adults in the U.S. feel the biggest health concern in the country is cancer. Other top concerns were obesity; neurological diseases, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Alzheimer’sdiabetes; and heart disease. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. John Wald, medical director for Public Affairs at Mayo Clinic, will share more insights gained from the National Health Check-Up survey. Also on the program, pediatric urologist Dr. Patricio Gargollo will cover common pediatric urology problems, including bed-wetting. And psychiatrist Dr. Michael Bostwick will share some startling statistics about suicide and suicide attempts.

Listen to the program on Saturday, Nov. 5, at 9:05 a.m. CDT, and follow #MayoClinicRadio.
