On the next edition of Another View on Health, hear the inspiring yet cautionary story of Ellen Jones, a woman who may soon face surgery to implant a defibrillator so she can stay alive.  Ellen suffers from heart disease, but it took years to diagnose because she was physically active, ate a healthy diet, and drank plenty of water.  Heart disease is the number one killer in women though it's known as the "silent disease".  Co-host and cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby will share the latest in research and treatment in heart disease.

On this edition of Another View, we gear up for our next "Race: Let's Talk About It" discussion - the topic this time is "The Talk"... the often difficult, but important discussion that Black and Latino families have with their children about avoiding confrontations with police officers. Our guests for this discussion include Dwayne Bryant, author of "The Stop" a book designed to improve police and community relations. For years, Bryant has shared his real life personal encounters with police, some humorous and some dangerous, to teach young people how to interact with law enforcement.  Also joining the discussion is Amos Jones,  Associate Professor of Law at Campbell University, who will share his personal narrative and talk about rights both during and after a police stop. We invite you to tune in on Friday,  February 17th at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog.  Then join us on Tuesday, February 21st from 6:30 - 8P for a town hall discussion at Fort Monroe Theatre, 42 Tidball Road, Fort Monroe, VA 23651.  The town hall is FREE and open to everyone, but we'd appreciate it if you would register.

It's been less than 30 days since Donald Trump became President, and in that time people the world over have taken to the streets in protest of his ban on Muslims entering the United States and the courts are now involved; the Administration has taken on mainstream media and presented "alternative facts" to support the President's initiatives; many in both political parties have expressed concern over Steve Bannon's role with national security; and Mr. Trump seemed to suggest that Frederick Douglass is still alive during his speech about Black HIstory Month.  Lots of fodder for the Another View Round Table - Roger Chesley, Columnist with the Virginian-Pilot; Carol Pretlow, Political Science Professor with NSU; Bill Thomas, Community Activist; and Wil LaVeist, Author, Journalist and Talk Show Host.  Intelligent conversation about today's current events on the next Another View, Friday, February 10, 2017 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
