Milena Miller talks with Ruth Dudding, Kim Knapp-Browne and Andrew Vogel

On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, host Milena Miller talks with Ruth Dudding and Kim Knapp-Browne of the Athens County Health Department, as well as Andrew Vogel, a second year osteopathic medical student at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Miller, Dudding, Knapp-Browne, and Vogel discuss the importance of heart health, preventative care, nutrition, and the effect one’s environment can have on overall health.

“The CDC tells us that our zip code is way more influential then our genetic code. So really, where we live and what we have access to is extremely influential on our health”, says Dudding.
