This was the week of Covid with the kids, so we have two segments worth listening to again!

Segment 1 is a repeat of a segment we ran in October. Breast cancer awareness is so important, so this interview is worth repeating so we think about it more than just in October!

Respiratory viruses in young children have many parents extremely concerned of late. Is it a cold? The flu? Covid? Or respiratory syncytial virus, also known as RSV, which causes common cold symptoms, but can also cause airway inflammation? Although anyone can get RSV, premature infants and patients under the age of two are most vulnerable to severe breathing problems due to their smaller airways. Dr. Jennifer Sonney, president of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, shares important information about the symptoms of RSV, who it affects most, and what people can do if diagnosed with RSV or how to prevent RSV.

Looking for healthier bedding? Naturepedic is the brand you want to check out. Arin Schultz is the director and joins me to talk about the benefits and why what you sleep on is so important.

While some aspects of life have returned to normal since the height of COVID-19, the blood donation rate has not, leading to more frequent supply shortages. Vitalant’s blood donor base has dropped by about 20% since 2019 and the nonprofit organization has also experienced a severe drop in blood donations from business blood drives as many people now work remotely.
Cliff Numark is the Senior Vice President for Vitalant, the nation’s largest nonprofit, independent, blood donation organization and talks with Michelle about how we can help the shortage.
