• Mayo Clinic Radio: National Health Checkup / advances in prenatal screening / pediatric ear, nose and throat problems

Twice a year, Mayo Clinic conducts a National Health Checkup survey to take the pulse of Americans on health opinions and behaviors. This fall, the survey focused on cancer and found that more than 60 percent of Americans have experienced a cancer diagnosis personally or through a loved one. The survey revealed many barriers that patients and families face when it comes to cancer care, including financial concerns, insurance and time for appointments. The good news is that 95 percent of Americans took some measures to prevent cancer.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Minetta Liu, a medical oncologist at Mayo Clinic, will break down the latest results of the Mayo Clinic National Health Check Up. Also on the program, Dr. Myra Wick, a medical geneticist at Mayo Clinic, will explain the latest advances in prenatal screening. And Dr. Karthik Balakrishnan, an otolaryngologist at Mayo Clinic, will discuss treatment for pediatric ear, nose and throat problems.
