By 2050, almost 85 million adults will be 65 or older. This aging population presents its own set of challenges when it comes to health care.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Paul Takahashi, a Mayo Clinic geriatrician, will explain what physicians look for during a geriatric exam and offer tips for staying healthy and safe as you age. Also on the program, Dr. Clayton Cowl, division chair of Preventive, Occupational and Aerospace Medicine, will discuss the health of over-the-road truck drivers. And dermatologist Dr. Dawn Davis will discuss why you should avoid tanning beds.
