Today Paul Pepper visits with RACHEL LITTRELL, MD, MU Health Care, about cardio-oncology. Rachel tells us that as we grow older, cancer and heart disease become more and more common.

Stay healthy, everyone! At [3:56] JILL WOMACK, TRYPS Founder and Executive Artistic Director, and student NATALIE BOTKINS, invite "mommies and me" (or "fathers and daughters") to a 'Princess Tea Party' fundraiser April 23rd at the Kimball Ballroom on the Stephens College campus.
