Mayo Clinic Radio: Choosing Senior Care/Parasitic Wonders/Mouse Avatars

May 11, 2015

Choosing long-term care for a loved one ... or yourself ... can be a difficult decision. The level of care, the cost and the physical surroundings all must be considered. Mayo Clinic geriatric specialist Dr. Paul Takahashi offers guidance on how to evaluate long-term care facilities and services. Also on the program, parasitologist Dr. Bobbi Pritt talks about her unusual blog, "Creepy, Dreadful, Wonderful Parasites: A Parasitologist's View of the World." And Dr. John Weroha explains how mouse avatars are helping to fight cancer in humans.
