We all know the obvious signs of  child abuse when we see it...whelps from harse beatings, cigarette burns, starvation, a filthy living environment.  But what about the subtle things...a disciplinary smack on the bottom, or yelling at your child when he/she does something wrong...is that also child abuse?  And why is it that African American children are almost twice as likely to suffer from abuse than white children?  On the next Another View we'll get some answers from Dr. Michelle Clayton, a child abuse expert with CHKD, and Natasha Knight, a child advocate with Portsmouth CASA.  Plus, Lisa Godley tells the story of artist and comic book creator Kevin Roberts!  Join us for Another View on Health, with Cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby, Friday, April 22 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!

The late Maurice White, lead singer of musical giant Earth, Wind and Fire, was diagnosed in 1992 with Parkinson's Disease.  Muhammad Ali was diagnosed in 1984 and continues to live with this disease that has no cure.  These are two prominent African Americans struck by Parkinson's - a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement, often including tremors, and often goes undiagnosed for years after its onslaught.   Today there is no cure for Parkinson's, but there are medications to help with the symptoms and research to find answers about the disease.  On the next Another View on Health, we'll talk about Parkinson's Disease with neurologist Dr. Carmen Fuentes, who specializes in treatment of the disease, along with Larry Dumville, a retired attorney with Parkinson's, and Don Bradway, Chair of the Advisory Board for American Parkinson's Disease Association, Hampton Roads.  Join guest host, cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby and host Barbara Hamm Lee as we discuss Parkinson's Disease on the next Another View, Friday, March 25 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!

So you've had a bit of chest pain and because you are aware of the symptoms of heart disease, you go to your cardiologist to check things out.  You get a stress test, and things come out "fine".  But you still have pain - now what do you do?  How hard do you push for additional testing?  What are the proper procedures that you should ask about?  Just how do you diagnose heart disease anyway?  On the next Another View on Health, Cardiologist Dr. Keith Newby joins us with answers to these and other questions you have about heart health.  Plus, Lisa Godley shares the history of the Hunton YMCA as part of our celebration of Black History Month.  It's all on Another View, Friday, February 26 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
